A strip and dip event sees 2,505 women bare all and attempt to create a world record in a charity swim.

A new Guinness World Record for the largest skinny dip is set at Magheramore Beach in County Wicklow as 2,505 women bare all for the sixth year of the annual Strip and Dip charity swim. The previous record of 786 was set on South Beach in Perth, Australia in 2015.

The Strip and Dip event was founded by Deirdre Featherstone in 2013 when she was undergoing treatment for breast cancer. It is a fundraiser for the children's cancer charity Aoibheann’s Pink Tie.

Those participating in the women-only event are required to spend at least five minutes in the water at Magheramore beach. Many of the participants feel emotional and empowered by the experience,

Women are amazing.
