Jumping into the New Year with a splash (video)

Dozens of students and Wageningen residents braved the winter chill on 1 January and dived into the Lower Rhine from the beach near the Wolfswaard house. The New Year's dip was held this year for the seventh time. After a communal warming-up, these hardened souls ran into the chilly water at about three in the afternoon, braving a water temperature of about 4 degrees Celsius. These people of Wageningen were not alone in ringing in the New Year in this way: a New Year's dip took place at more than 200 locations across the country.
