So what's the head condom thing? Everyone is ok to jump naked into freezing water but worried about getting their hair wet?  Grin

"At least once every human should have to run for his life, to teach him that milk does not come from supermarkets, that safety does not come from policemen, that 'news' is not something that happens to other people. He might learn how his ancestors lived and that he himself is no different--in the crunch his life depends on his agility, alertness, and personal resourcefulness." - Robert Heinlein

Was it correct that the water was 14 c? That is over 57 f. Last time I checked water hadn't hit 40 degrees close to shore here and it is the first day of summer. When they do the winter one they break at least a foot of ice.

Where is that? 
57 F is cold enough. The artic ocean plunge I did in Alaska was brutal.

Tasmania - Hobart's River Derwent  

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hobart

"The massive turnout may have been due to an unseasonably warm start to the Hobart winter, with daytime temperatures of up to 17 degrees Celsius (62.6 F).

But the reality this morning was an air temperature of about 4C (39.2 F) at 7:45am, with the water fortunately warmer, at around 14C (57.2 F)"


This one is in Antarctica........

"Fifteen Australians living at Antarctica's Davis station stripped off on a chilly minus 33.5 degree day to plunge through a hole in the sea ice for a dip in minus 1.8 degree water."
