Sydney Skinny: Hundreds Of People Bare All In A Bid To Break World Record For The Largest Nude Ocean Swim
” Winter’s clinging on here in the UK, but it’s still summer Down Under – making the weather perfect for a spot of skinny dipping.
Hundreds of people stripped off on Sunday to take part in the second annual Sydney Skinny in an attempt to break the world record for the largest nude ocean swim.
Over 700 people took part in last year’s inaugural swim, which aims to promote a positive body image.
Held at Cobblers Beach, Middle Head, in Sydney Harbour National Park, the event sees participants swimming 900m amid the waters of Middle Head.”
According to the Independent the crowd numbered around seven hundred while the News.com alleges 1000 participants none of the photos accompanying either article conveys anywhere near the lesser number let alone thousand . This video is all we could find documenting Sunday’s Sidney Skinny and it is really only a slide show of the pictures from the above referenced news articles .
Compare and contrast that visual evidence with the video documentation of last year’s Kiwi attempt :
The difference is important as you may remember from earlier that we reported on the fact that the New Zealanders set a new world record that was very well documented whereas this attempt by the people of Sidney seems quite laid back in comparison . We’ve heard no definitive headcount so we cannot say whether the Aussies succeeded or not .
” Bathers on a New Zealand beach stripped naked and took to the Pacific Ocean in an attempt to shatter the record for the world’s largest skinny dip.
Basking in the glow of a warm summer’s day down-under, the 745 nude swimmers swarmed into the water on the coast of Gisborne in northeastern New Zealand.”
” The intrepid participants from across the country gathered as nature intended in the waves for what organisers hope will be a new Guinness World Record.”

Sailendra Nath Roy, a 49-year-old police officer, was attempting to cross the turbulent River Teesta on Sunday in the state of West Bengal on a 600-foot wire above the water.
After attaching his shoulder-length hair to a pulley on the wire, Roy had completed about half of the distance but he then became entangled and found himself unable to move.
After about 20 minutes, he became motionless and was eventually rescued by local people. No ambulance or a doctor was present during the performance, which was watched by his family.”
” Yesterday, 69 like-minded Australians gathered at the 26th annual Summernats car festival in Canberra to break the Guinness World Record for the largest simultaneous burnout. For ten seconds, a mix of classic and late-model muscle cars unleashed a fury of supercharged and naturally aspirated noise, and a multicolored cloud of tire smoke. By Guinness’ reckoning, the Aussies out-American-ed America by a count of 19 cars. “
