were part of the record-setting crowd.
I just read that the Tybee Island polar bear plunge on New Year’s Day officially broke a Guinness World Record.
“Guinness World Record now credits the Jan. 1 event as the largest ever gathering of people wearing swim caps,” reported the Savannah Morning News. “In all, 2,049 New Year’s beach-goers sported caps for the event, which also served as a fundraiser for the Tybee Post Theater — whom Guinness lists as the official record holder.”
Congratulations to my friends Thomas Oliver, Melissa Turner and Jill Vejnoska for taking the plunge that day and sporting their swim caps.
I am thrilled I was on hand to witness such a historic event.
