Being the Continuing Adventures of a Woman and her Trusty Kayak in New York Harbor, the Hudson River, and Beyond.
(with occasional political rants just to keep things lively!)
you are all very brave, and a bit mad!! x
These folks do this every Sunday, all winter, with extra swims when it snows. They're all insane and wonderful. The club holds a lottery for a small number of new membership slots at the beginning of each Polar Bear season; once you join, I think that you are still not a made bear until you have done 12 swims in a season. The press adores the big January 1 event, but being a true Coney Island Polar Bear takes a lot more than just wearing a silly outfit, imbibing some liquid courage, and running into the water on New Years Day!
