The final start list for the Christmas Day race 2022 is published below. Only the pre-qualified swimmers named on the list will be allowed to race.
As always, the race will start at 9 am sharp. If you wish to view the race, please try and arrive by 08:30 as, judging by recent years, the bankside tends to be full of spectators.

Nicola first in the "points mean prizes" stakes to scoop the Bernard Fettes cup for the Winter series. Ice meant no races today, but competitors still received 2 points for a shoulders submerged dip in the ice.
Hon. Handicapper Dani Lobo presented his annual "most competitive swimmer" (or should that read most combative swimmer?) award to Natasha Wake.
James Norton presented Michael Cullen (aka SpeedoMick) with a cup for "an unherralded behind the scenes contribution".
