The Great British Skinny Dip - going swimmingly...
[Afbeelding: clive.jpg]

The Great British Skinny Dip has got off to a flying start this #septembare, and there's still the rest of the month to go!

Down in Devon, Torbay Sun Club welcomed forty people to their skinny dip at the usually non-Naturist Hollicombe Beach in Paignton.  Those who attended included a couple from Germany and two women who had skinny dipping on their bucket lists!  With good local press coverage and several new members, the event has been a resounding success.  One of the aims of the event was also to try to help convince the local authority to make the beach Naturist - hopefully an aim that will be realised!  Another beach dip, at Climping in Sussex, didn't get great weather, but those who attended raised £75 for 'Safe in Sussex'.

Diogenes in Buckinghamshire once again partnered with Rennie Grove Hospice Care and hosted a sponsored skinny dip at the club, enjoying beautiful warm sunshine.  Of those who attended, the vast majority were new to Naturism and some have since requested membership forms.  All the visitors were impressed by the welcome they received, and the first timers all loved their first experience of Naturism!  One of the event's aims, aside from helping a great local cause, was to normalise Naturism - there's no doubt that this was realised.

The very beautiful Beacon Tarn, near to Coniston in the Lake District, attracted an increased turnout of twenty four this year - up from fifteen last year.  The weather, while better than last year, was still damp, however the hardy souls who took part had a great ramble up to the tarn and enjoyed champagne picnic as well as a bracing dip in this wonderful setting.  Afterwards, many of the group headed for a warm up and some refreshments in the Black Bull in Coniston - a fitting end to a wonderful event.

The regular swim run by Noah's Ark in Surrey were pleased to have many new women come along - most of whom had never swum naked  before.  All have said they would return - very encouraging!

Back north again, this time to Yellowcraig  on the Forth, where a dawn skinny dip was held in aid of Marie Curie.  Another stunning location, enhanced by the magic of the sun coming up over the horizon, the skinny dippers enjoyed the wonderfully calm waters and the organisers are grateful to the RNLI for providing safety cover.

The Great British Skinny Dip (part II)

This September, locations across the UK are shedding their inhibitions - and their swimming costumes -  to enjoy the liberating experience of costume-free swimming  - and they're loving it!  The Great British Skinny Dip, which sets out to show the health benefits of costume-free swimming, is now underway and we're getting some impressive feedback!

Andrew Welch, Commercial Manager for British Naturism says "last year was a great success, but this year we're building on that and all the early indications are that this year's events are attracting more people, inspired by the health and wellbeing benefits that costume-free swimming brings.”

Swims have been happening across the nation from the northern reaches of Scotland to the coast of Cornwall. There's more to come - keep an eye on the list
Wigton Baths in Cumbria was one of our new venues.  A chance conversation with the Manager by a regular skinny dipper led to an offer to run a GBSD event, which attracted several newcomers.  There is now talk of running regular skinny dip sessions...
Adrenalin Quarry in Cornwall hosted a swim and zip wire event.  Two attendees travelled over 50 miles to attend, and one lady came with a wetsuit for her regular swim which she left on shore as she joined in the GBSD event! The event organiser is already trying to put on further skinny dip events.
A great event at Monknash beach in South Wales was attended by many who enjoyed good weather. Watch the video!
Andrew Welch says "Although the event is designed to be fun, there are some important underlying aims.  People are often brought up to cover their bodies instinctively, sometimes with unwelcome consequences for both physical and mental wellbeing.  The Great British Skinny Dip sets out to counter that, along with showing people that swimming costumes are pointless"
And this weekend, BN's big Saturday night out at Stoke Waterworld, come and be part of it...

Our dedicated website at www.greatbritishskinnydip.co.uk has full details of the months events and the benefits of costume-free swimming.  We'd love as many people as possible to enjoy a skinny-dip, challenging themselves to try something truly different this month.

'Naturism is the enjoyment of getting as naked as possible, wherever and whenever appropriate, alone or with others, just for its own sake.'
