Story

 

Following on from my beautiful skinny dip experience in Rhossili Bay (which made it into the Guinness Book of World Records) I have decided to recreate it....up North!

On Saturday 22nd September you are invited to join hundreds of others in the North East Skinny Dip! The benefit of being on the East coast is that if it is a clear day we get to run towards a big red sun too! Sunrise is at 06.52 on this day so if we can all get there nice and early we could time it just right.

The day is also the Autumn Equinox, the transition from summer to winter. I cannot think of a more appropriate way to celebrate the summer and welcome the winter than stripping down to skin and running wild and free into the North Sea!!

I encourage you to use the event to raise money for MIND at this page (or create your own!!) and I would like to use the opportunity to increase awareness of mental health issues and promote this cause.
