Hardy souls, Yes; but icy water, NO. Sea temperatures today were around 11.5C, about a couple of degrees warmer than air temperature. This is the reason it's safe to go in for a short swim. If it was indeed icy, then this would be a dangerous and risky activity.So well done all of you (and sorry to be pedantic, but accurate reporting is a disappearing skill today).

Various sensitive bits of me have shrunk to the size of walnuts just thinking about this! But well done to all who took part. :>)
