Are you joining The Sydney Skinny in 2014?

Posted on Monday, November 25, 2013

How is 2013 treating you? We hope you have had a wonderful year fulfilling the hopes and aspirations you had for your 2013.

Do you know you are a part of an exceptional group of people – the inaugural Sydney Skinny fans. In 2013 we set a world record, raised more than $11,000 for charity and had a wonderful time doing so…

We think you are so special that we want to share our plans for The Sydney Skinny 2014 with you – first, before we let the rest of the world know.

So get your diary, phone, calendar… whatever you use to plan your life, here are the details:

Sunday 23rd February 2014, Cobblers Beach, Sydney.

So what are we planning for 2014???

  • Designated swim waves – so you can pick what time you swim, enjoy the festival area for longer and plan for your day better.
  • Two swims to choose from – The Sydney Skinny (900m) or do a shortened version of the course we are calling the nudie novice, a 300m swim check out the course
  • Organised National Parks & Wildlife activities and some wonderful art installations….
  • Sydney Skinny sarongs are back ensuring everyone will walk away with their own Sydney Skinny memento!
  • The festival area is open to everyone for free – so you can bring your supporters along and enjoy the festival area with them. If your supporters change their mind on the day, like many did, they can purchase a ticket to swim at the event…
  • No spectators: no swim wrist band = no beach, until the final swim wave is finished.

The people who made last year’s Sydney Skinny possible are back too… that’s right, our friends from nudie are once again our fabulous presenting partner, enabling us to celebrate The Sydney Skinny and what it is to be a part of.

Here’s a message from the wonderful nudie friends:

Last year we presented the Sydney Skinny where more than 750 wonderful people stripped off their cossies for a world-first 900m nudie swim.

And guess what… we are about to do it all again next year! As an exclusive offer (before tickets go on sale to the public) we would like to invite you back for 2014.

Fun? Tick. Freedom? Tick. Feel-good? Ginormous tick! That’s why we’re sponsoring the event again and would love for you to be involved too!

Simply click on the link to pre-register. Looking forward to seeing you there! Peace, love & nudie.

Public entries will open on 5/12/13

We would love you to celebrate your entry into The 2014 Sydney Skinny by raising money for Foundation for National Parks and Wildlife. They are the only organisation in Australia whose philanthropy is an investment in our public estate, our unique species, and our cultural heritage – for all to enjoy.

Your fundraising efforts go towards much needed infrastructure in and around Sydney Harbour National Park and also many other important National Parks initiatives.

We hope to see you all again in 2014 to create a truly exhilarating and uplifting event!
