Ready for the last swim of the year?

The “Baignade des banquisards” has become a real institution in Châtelaillonnais. More than 500 swimmers, a little crazy, gather on the beach for the first swim of the year. A nice way to welcome the new year.

A crazy bet


The bet is this: dive into 15 degree water. So are you in?
Then choose your best costume, bee, superhero or belle époque bather, gather your best friends and give them an appointment on the beach of Chatelaillon for this crazy meeting! Laughter and good mood guaranteed!

Of course, you don’t dive into cold water without a little warm-up. It’s Claudie, our super-woman, who comes to train you… a bit of zumba, jogging, stretching and we go for it!

Bravo to all the courageous ones


Je mouille le maillot pour une si belle cause !

A swim for a good cause

Having fun, winning a crazy bet, it’s good but when it’s for a good cause, it’s even better! Thanks to a partnership with the Casino of Chatelaillon, a check is given to the association of the Blouses Roses in order to support them in their future activities.

A nice gesture! So to participate, don’t forget to pick up your bracelet at the town hall or at the Casino.


1200 euros! Thank you all for your participation!

Claude, volunteer at the Blouses Roses
