Skinny Dipping world record attempt in Gisborne


Gisborne is marking the start to the New Year with an attempt to take back the skinny dipping world record.

The city won the record with 506 Rhythm and Vines festival goers going for a nude dip on December 30 last year.

However the record was overtaken by 729 nude swimmers in the Spanish town of Vera mid-year.

Gisborne Mayor Meng Foon is urging people to head down to the Midway Beach area and strip on December 31 at 4pm.

"We need 1000 people so if anybody wishes to come along and help us break that record we'd love to see you there."
