A charity that saves lives at sea is looking for daring participants to take part in its chilly swimming challenge.
The Fraserburgh Lifeboat Boxing Day swim, organised by the local RNLI crew, is an annual tradition in the town’s port.
Now in its 11th year, people are urged to take part and swim around 50m across the harbour to raise funds for the organisation.
The crew is often called out to help with emergencies at sea and need funds to help cover costs.
Lifeboat coxswain Victor Sutherland said: “We’ve raised more than £65,000 from the event over the years.

“We have opened up registration and we are looking for people to take part this time round.
“Last year we had 18 people take part and it is roughly a 52-metre swim from our lifeboat to the stairs at the lifeboat berth.
“The most we have had take part is around 36 so we’d like to get as many people to take part as possible. It can be a shock to the system and when people took the plunge last year it was around 6C. We’ve seen it as low as 2C in the sea.”
Fundraisers are asked to email the crew at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01346 515 162 to sign up to the swim or to get more information.
