My friend, Jason Pooler, and hundreds of other hardy Mainers went swimming in the icy ocean today. The 17 knot wind made it feel like -17°C.
Sea water freezes at approximately -2.2°C, depending on the salinity.
The Lobster Dip was a great time. I don’t think I’ll ever do the dip, but I’ll probably be back to photograph the event and cheer on my fellow Mainers.
