Fancy a nude ocean swim in Sydney Harbour?
That’s exactly what The Sydney Skinny is, a nude open water swim of either 300m or 900m.
Back for another year of celebrations, there is a set course, however, the event is untimed and the focus is on a joyous celebration of life, courage and acceptance of yourself and others.
All funds raised will be donated to the skin cancer charity, Skin Check Champions.
This is the most liberating fun you’ll ever have.
Leap out of your comfort zone for this untimed, joyous, skinny dip in the stunning Sydney Harbour.
There are two courses, a 300m for beginners and a 900m for the more seasoned ocean swimmers.
This is a fully ticketed, exclusive event and only swimmers are allowed on the beach. After your swim to protect your modesty and dry off you will receive the iconic sarong. It’s a cherished collectable that warmly welcomes you into the Sydney Skinny community.
After the swim (and fully clothed), we celebrate everything that is good in the world with a joyous festival.
