If you don’t care for nudity, stay away from Rhossili beach in wales this weekend. According to the Guardian, skinny dippers will attack the beach and frigid waters to break the world record. Money collected from entrance fees and sponsors will go to the Marie Curie Cancer Care charity.
Rhossili beach sits on the Gower peninsula. The waters, while clear, beautiful and indigo will add a tint of blue to the skins of the brave dippers. At least 400 skinny dippers are trying to break the previous record of 250 bare swimmers.
In order for the record to be officially beaten, all dippers must be submerged in the icy water, up to the waist, for a minimum of ten minutes. Surely, there are plenty of time keepers. Spectators of the event are expected to out-number the chilly swimmers. Can you blame them?
Saturday, more than 400 bare chested and bottomed divers stood in the frigid waters. Their penchant for thrills, nudity and charity prevailed. The record was broken and many went home to warm their appendages.
The record was broken by those that braved the waves. Revelers posted on Facebook pages: “We did it!!!! Looks like there were about 400 of us so the record is well broken;” stated John Gwalter. Stephen Clarke wrote; “Just back home and still grinning. What an awesome sight. It really is something that I will never forget. I spoke to lots people who were so ecstatic at taking part. As others have said, I can't wait till next year."
