Polar bears diving merrily in the North sea

The participants were there, although not wake up, that were just full of surrender in the cold water, in many cases, just as quickly, back out.

polar Bears in the North sea remains a tradition in many coastal communities. Saturday there was both a dive site in Oostende, Bredene, if The Cock. Everywhere were the security forces ready. There was a strong wind with high waves as a result. The polar bears were only up to their waists in the water. Divers tied with a ribbon to where the people in the water were. While the rescuers, divers and the Red Cross at the ready, stood at first, was still the warming is an important part of the preparation for the Dive. Although it is particularly important for the health of the participants, the atmosphere is one of the reasons why thousands of polar bears each year to come back. In the hours before the zwemuitje in the cold sea, burst a gigantic error party los on the beach of Ostend. A large part of the participants of the dost are traditionally taken out with crazy costumes of a beekeeper with his bees, Trump, a glass to scottish skirts. After the start, ran the mass in the direction of the water and after a few seconds came the first, yet again, numb. “The water is cold and wet”, laughing Peter and Lindsay from Aarschot. “It was the first time and next year we come surely back. We stayed for only a short time in the water, but especially the global warming was also the most enjoyable part.” Also Nadine and Viviane do not remain long floundering in the water. “We even go in the water and go there and then hear”, tell the ladies from the province of Limburg. “We do it mainly for the adrenaline and the fun.” Geert Van Mierloo is decked out as the English garde. “We come every year to dive from Vossem with a group of 30 people. I have this outfit, chosen to keep order,” laughs Geert.
