Polar Bear Swim 2015

2015 arrived with outstanding brilliance, Vancouver’s fourth straight day of clear skies. Winter sunshine = “Arctic High”, a strong ridge of arctic air holding Pacific storms at bay. Afternoon temperatures just above freezing didn’t stop an estimated 15-18 thousand people from charging boldly into 3 C/47 F waters of English Bay.
