2009 Carolina Beach Polar Plunge was Brrrrfect

Well, it was around 50 degrees at plunge time and the water temp was 53. But that didn't stop hordes of brave souls from shedding their outerwear and plunging into the icy Atlantic. Judging from the many smiles, the swimmers all had a wonderful time and helped raise some much needed funds for a very worthy cause.

You'll be happy to know that everyone was able to thaw out and there were no incidents of any kind...or at least nothing that a cup of hot chocolate couldn't quickly remedy. And as you can see in the photos, surfers in wet suits and a diver, adorned in a serious dry suit, were on hand in case someone needed assistance.

All in all, it was a very good afternoon!
