North East Skinny Dip is an established and popular annual mass skinny dip that takes place around the autumn equinox on Druridge Bay as the sun rises. It is about celebrating life and nature and our own, unique, physical bodies. It is about taking a risk and embracing a moment of pure joy and freedom. And most importantly it is about coming together and supporting each other in this crazy life! Your regitsration is a pledge to MIND - The Mental Health Charity. Since 2012 we have collectively raised over £25,000 to strengthen the work of this incredible charity in the hope that one day we may all walk free of our stuggles with mental health!
NESD continues to thrive. 2016 saw more than 400 dippers take to the water! Thank you all for holding the magic of this crazy and delicious event! If you have joined us before you will understand that there is no better way to give thanks for the summer and welcome the winter than stripping down to skin at sunrise and running wild and free into the North Sea with HUNDREDS of other people!!! If you have not, now is your chance. Sign up today!!!
NESD 2017 will take place on Sunday 24th September on the beautiful stretch of beach behind Druridge Bay Country Park. We will dip with the rising sun just before 07.00. Please arrive in plenty of time. The sun waits for no man. Or woman! At previous events we have been blessed with clear skies and stunning views! We will gather post-skinny dip to share our experiences and hold the buzz and fill our cold but happy and oh-so-proud tummies with hot drinks and food!
The Magic Hat Cafe will provide us with a breakfast barbeque. And North Shore Coffee will provide us with hot drinks. On the beach! The Magic Hat Cafe aims to abolish avoidable food waste by ‘upcycling’ surplus food to feed the community. The cafe is run entirely by eco-conscious volunteers trying to make a difference in our world. They operate a ‘Pay-As-You-Feel’ system so please give generously. Check out their website and support them if you can! http://www.themagichatcafe.co.uk/
Pre-dip on-site camping is available on Saturday 23rd September and has proven very popular. £7.50 per person! Caravans and campervans are welcome to find a space in the car park. We will burn a fire and sing and dance and be generally celebratory. You can purchase tickets for camping here at our eventbrite page too.
NESD is a ticketless event. Get registered, pledge your £12 and start making your travel plans! There are limited public transport options for arrival on Saturday night and NO local public transport on Sunday morning. We recommend you find a friend with a car and fill it with people!
