Skinny-Dipping Beach Record Set At Rhossili

Skinny-Dipping Rhossili

Participants who showed up on Rhossili Beach in Wales hoped to break the world skinny-dipping record. The event took place on Sunday where almost 400 people showed up to break the previous 250-person record.

“There was something absolutely surreal about being on a beach with 400 naked bodies,” organizer Alison Powell said in a statement. “It’s not a sight you see very often.”

The 35-year-old online editor had tried to schedule the dip in November but got the bum’s rush with few signing up to jump in the frigid waters.

A summer swim clearly had greater appeal. It was also for a good cause: almost $20,000 was raised for a cancer care centre.

In order to break the record, the bathers had to brave the chilly waters of the North Atlantic for 10 minutes. Guinness World Records still has to verify the record.
