Icelanders swimming in the cold North Atlantic Ocean
It is to celebrate the art of swimming , and for people to swim more.
Icelandic Coast Guard had two of its boats there to take part in the celebration.
They evven had a swimming race , from the Coast Guard boat , to land .
But they also just enjoyed swimming , and sang along as the swam in the cold sea.
The outside temperature was at 6 on the celcius and the sea water temp, was 7 degrees on the celcius.
After the swimming , the swimmers went to the hot water pool nearby ,to get some heat into their bodies, and to accept some medals for their part in this today .
