“It is an incredible feeling when you dive into the water …the water is 0°C. The most immediate reaction is massive, massive hyper-ventilation.
And then following that, you start losing feeling in all your fingers and all your toes…
And then it starts to move up your arms until you can no longer feel your arms and legs. And all your blood has gone to your core in order to protect your core. It’ not the kind of place where you would want to spend a lot of time swimming.
