18th Usedom winter swim

Once again this February, the traditional winter swimming event is taking place at the three seaside health resorts of Ahlbeck, Heringsdorf and Bansin on the island of Usedom. 'Cooling our football fever with an ice-cold dip' is the motto for this year's event, which sees courageous participants plunge into the icy waters of the Baltic Sea on 11 February 2012.
