“This event is seriously private – no spectators are allowed, and it’s ticketed, meaning that the only folks who’ll see you in your most natural state are those also in their most natural of states,” Event Director Tanya Taylor said.
The swim will take off from Cobbler’s Beach and head through through secluded waterways, meaning privacy will be protected throughout. Plus, competitors will be fully clothed on land, and covered by water and when you’re in the deep blue, meaning the cheeky escapade can be done on your terms, no matter what.
Cobblers Beach is one of eight legal Nude Beaches in Sydney.
“Also, safety is a big deal for this harbour swim,” she said.
“On the day, the whole naked crew will be accompanied by the Maroubra Life Saving Team, while there will also be extra precaution drone technology deployed to ensure that no toothy fish are lurking below or ahead.
“You can also choose the wave time you want to go through, to help prevent getting kicked in the face by any other thrill-seekers splashing around in front of you.
The aim this year is to break the current world record of 2,505 nude swimmers.
There are two courses, a 300m for beginners and a 900m for the more seasoned ocean swimmers.
