Top Tips for Cold Water Dips – RNLI

With many reported health benefits, cold water dipping is increasingly being tried out for the first time by intrepid swimmers. In this video, Liam and Nick from the RNLIwater safety team explain how to enjoy cold water swimming safely, from what to take with you to how to avoid cold water shock.
The RNLI is the charity that saves lives at sea. 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, lifeboat crews around the UK and Ireland are ready to launch to help those in need. Whether you’re stuck on a sinking ship, cut off by a rapidly rising tide, or in the water and close to drowning, RNLI crew members will drop everything to come to your rescue. 95% of RNLI lifeboat crews and station staff are volunteers. But it’s not just lifeboats. RNLI lifeguards patrol 248 beaches across the UK and Channel Islands, keeping people safe, providing safety advice and rescuing those in trouble. Education volunteers visit schools and swimming clubs to help teach the next generation how to enjoy the water safely. And volunteer fundraisers and shop workers give up their time to generate vital funds. The RNLI is also working to help communities around the world that are most at risk of drowning. If you spot someone in trouble in the water, call 999 or 112 and ask for the coastguard.
