Thousands strip off for Sydney nude swim

The sun wasn’t out but the guns most definitely were when thousands of people stripped off to take part in The Sydney Skinny annual charity race.




Close to 1400 swimmers flocked to Cobblers Beach in Sydney’s Middle Harbour, daring to bare as they swam the 300 and 900 metre course.

With the event about “personally challenging yourself to step ever-so-slightly outside your comfort zone”, it’s all about the journey – and not the nudity - for everyone who takes part.

For surfing legend Layne Beachley, the day was about having fun without any inhibitions whatsoever.

“It’s amazing how many excuses people have when I say ‘you want to come swim nude with me?’ and they’re like ‘Uh, maybe give me another 12 months when I’ve lost all little bit more weight,’” Layne told the TODAY show.
