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 .
