Skinny Dip World Record: Naked Swimmers Attempt New Record At Wales Beach

On Sunday, hundreds of naked swimmers took to the cold waters at Rhossili beach in Wales in an effort to set a new record for the world's largest skinny dip.

Nearly 400 people shed their clothes for the swim, well above the existing record of 250.

From The Guardian:

Alison Powell, an online publishing editor who came up with the idea as a way of raising money for the Marie Curie Cancer Care charity and the National Trust, said it had gone "brilliantly". She said: "It was amazing. It's such a beautiful beach."

To break the record, the bathers had to wade into the water until it was up to their waists and stay there, shivering, for 10 minutes.
