Take on the ‘Dip in the Nip’ chal­lenge

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS -

THE sev­enth an­nual Strip and Dip takes place at the scenic Magher­amore Beach on Satur­day fol­low­ing last year’s record break­ing ef­fort.

2,500 women from 32 coun­ties and over 22 coun­tries stripped off last year at the se­cluded beach to set a new Guin­ness World Record for the largest gath­er­ing of skinny dip­pers, while also rais­ing €500,000 for Aoib­heanns Pink Tie.

No record break­ing tar­get has been set for this year so the em­pha­sis will be firmly fo­cused on hav­ing ‘fun’.

Wayne Jones and Deirdre Feather­stone are the main or­gan­is­ers. Last year’s fes­tiv­i­ties were held in the Grand Ho­tel in Wick­low town but will move to the Ark­low Bay Ho­tel for this year’s event. A disco will take place in the Ark­low Bay later in the even­ing at a cost €15, which also in­cludes some food plat­ters and a glass of pros­ecco.

A bus leaves the ho­tel on the morn­ing of the dip at 10 a.m. to drop ev­ery­one off at the beach. After the dip the bus will col­lect you and ei­ther drop you off at Sally O’Brien’s for a mu­sic and gin re­cep­tion or will drop you back at the ho­tel.
