Temperatures in the 60s made for a moderately comfortable First Day in the Bay plunge at Cape Charles Saturday. Members of the Vacation Homeowners Group of Cape Charles planned the event, which raised funds for Citizens for Central Park. The third-year event filled a section of Cape Charles Town Beach. More than 200 people preregistered for the event, about double the number of last year’s participants, said event originator Todd Curran.
