In a few words
"The May Dip takes place at sunrise on the first of May each year. It's a (non-compulsory) tradition where students run into the North Sea to purge themselves of their 'academic sins', preceded by a torchlit procession along the pier and followed by a warming hot chocolate on the beach."
