Guinness World Record largest skinny dip attempt in Vera Playa 21st July 2013

I have just read the entry about peoples clothes / valuables being left unattended as they go in the water. I was researching the other attempts over last couple of years and saw that one attempt in 'cold' Wales where there were marker posts every 3 or 4 yards with a number on. This is where people left their belongings and when they came out the water they went straight to their stuff.

I think this would be a good idea for us, and have a 'marshall / responsible adult' at each or every couple to look after the things. This will give more people more confidence in going in and staying in.

Here is the link to the video on The Telegraph page

That's certainly another way of doing it, although I'd imagine more marshals would be required than if there was a central "tent".  Whilst it's true that naturists are invariably honest and reliable, an event like this will undoubtedly attract low-life thieves - so good provision for securing people's valuables is vital.

There's one in Essex as well.

And Dorset, and Wales.  We need to go for 600-700 people to get a proper record!

Looks like we will need a few more in the water in July as it would appear that the record was broken on 30th December in New Zealand with the new number being 506.
It looks like the organisers utilised a camping event when a lot of people were present, so maybe our day utilising the Spanish "day without swimwear" is a good idea. Here is the link, nothing on Guinness yet ....

I have read somewhere that the NZ attempt was invalid as they used two venues.
This was in the context that the (currently) 4 British venues cannot just add their numbers together.

I don't think you've read the whole thread - the date is now in July.

That was an earlier attempt in NZ.

Well the official Guinness Book of Records application is in. It is set for 12:00 mid day on SUNDAY 21st JULY 2013.

All we need now is five hundred and so... or many more... nudie dudies in the sea at the same time, so that we can get proof and then we will all be "record breakers"... Roy Castle would be proud of us... !

So with Euro Weekly, Sol Times, Spectrum FM, Chirrunguitos, bars, Spanish press, Spanish "day without swim suits" etc etc.. I reackon were on a winner here guys....

So I'll raise this glass of Old Speckled Hen English ale here in freezing Worcestershire and toast a hot successful day in July on my favourite beach in the world......... Cheers  :y

Excellent!

Alan, our star webmmaster, is going to give this its own category on the forum - coming soon,  so let's keep the momentum going and spread the news far and wide!  Phil, will think about wording for the posters today.

Happy owners and winter residents at Vera Playa, our piece of Naturist Paradise.
