The first swim of the year is a fun if chilly way of celebrating the New Year in Barcelona. This increasingly popular first swim of the year is called  'Primer Bany de l'Any!' and celebrates its 16th edition on 1st January 2012. It takes place in Barcelona at the Sant Sebastià beach in front of the Club Natació Atlètic Barceloneta (see location details below) Participation is free but registration is recommended. Of course you don't have to register to swim in the sea on New Year's Day in Barcelona, but if you do, then you will get a hot shower in the club house and a diploma after the race.
