Thousands of Women in Ireland Smash Record for World’s Largest Skinny Dip

More than 2,000 women bared all at an Irish beach on Saturday, setting a new world record for the largest skinny dip and raising thousands of dollars for a children’s cancer charity.

The 2,505 naked women spent at least five minutes in the chilly waters of secluded Magheramore beach, County Wicklow, roughly 60 kilometers south of Dublin, to set the new Guinness World Record. They hailed from across Ireland and 22 other countries around the world, helping to raise more than 290,000 euros (about $342,000) for the charity Aoibheann’s Pink Tie.

Saturday’s skinny dip smashed the three-year-old record of 786 people taking the plunge in Perth, Western Australia, at an event to promote positive body images.
