Bathers on a New Zealand beach stripped naked and took to the Pacific Ocean in an attempt to shatter the record for the world's largest skinny dip. Basking in the glow of a warm summer’s day down-under, the 745 nude swimmers swarmed into the water on the coast of Gisborne in northeastern New Zealand. The intrepid participants from across the country gathered in the lapping waves for what organisers hope will be a new Guinness World Record. The event was organized by New Zealand radio network, The Edge and music festival, BW Summer Festival. Footage and photos of the attempt will now be sent to Guinness World Records in order to obtain the official title. The current Guinness World Record for skinny dipping was set on 21st July 2013 by 729 naked bathers on Playa El Playazo beach in Vera, Spain.
