Guðlaugur Friðþórsson - 6h in 5c in 1984

Icelandic fisherman - survived six hours(!) in 5 °C (41 °F) by swimming to shore after fishing vessel capsized 6km off the coast in 1984. Heavy stuff and not mentioned in openwaterpedia even...

There is a movie on it, worth a watch -

    It starts a bit slow, but when they finally get onto the boat and aftermath is nice, you will be able to relate...
