Ye Amphibious Ancients Bathing Association

The Phibbies retain a passion for open-water swimming which has been the main part of its identity since those far off days of swimmers that would go for their regular daily ‘Dook’ (before the regular use of indoor swimming pools) from Broughty Pier into the River Tay.

As well as being something of an institution in the Tayside area the organisation is unique in being the only one of its kind left in the country.

Today, the organisation arranges and hosts a variety of open-water swim events with a summer programme of routes/courses to offer a different range of challenges attracting swimmers from the UK, Europe and beyond. The swims are organised for all ages and there are competitive and non-competitive events. ‘Phibbies Rules’ are applied such as; No Wetsuits please!
