TORONTO, July 7 /CNW/ - Thousands of ordinary people across North America are expected to participate in a mass skinny-dip on July 10th at 3 pm (EDT).
Last year, 13,674 participants in 139 locations set a Guinness World Record(TM) for the most people simultaneously skinny-dipping. The objective this year is to break last year's record.
Skinny-dipping is an activity that most Canadians can relate to. But for most people, it has been limited to a nighttime experience in remote locations. This event will give individuals, couples and families a chance to experience the joy and freedom of skinny-dipping in the sun as part of a large group. In addition, participants may discover what naturists have known for nearly a century - that communal nudity leads to greater self-respect, acceptance of others, and closeness to nature.
The event is being coordinated by the American Association for Nude Recreation but several locations in Canada are also participating.
Wreck Beach Preservation Society
Wreck Beach, British Columbia
Surrey United Naturists Association
Helios Nudist Association
Green Haven Sun Club
Crocus Grove Sun Club
Patricia Beach, Manitoba
