Event description
Ever felt like doing something a little out of your comfort zone? Take the plunge with the South West Skinny at Summerleaze Beach, Bude!

About this Event

The SW Skinny is a public skinny dip, chunky dunk or fancy-dress swim celebrating togetherness and the importance of camaraderie and moral support, all whilst raising money for Mind - the mental health charity.

With an option to camp together the night before the swim, at Cerenety Eco-Campsite in Bude, the evening offers a chance to meet your fellow dippers, share experiences, sing around the campfire and enjoy delicious food. All proceeds raised go directly to Mind, in recognition of Mental Health Awareness Week (18 - 24 May 2020).

All bodies welcome, with no age limitations! All manner of swim wear is fine, or push yourself to experience the adrenaline of stripping off and running into the waves “au natural” with friends.

For full details of the event please visit www.swskinny.org.uk

I want to bring sympathetic people together, sharing stories around a campfire, waking up with the sunrise, taking a step out of their comfort zones to challenge fears and insecurities and, with the encouragement of camaraderie, run into the sea together!

This year, Dry Robe has donated a Short Sleeved Advance Changing Robe (size Large, colour: black and red)worth £120, available to win via a raffle. See ticket options for the chance to win, or buy a ticket on the day of the dip!
