Hardy souls are being encouraged to bare all for charity.
The North East Skinny Dip takes place at Druridge Bay on Sunday, September 22, in aid of mental health charity Mind and the National Trust.
It is hoped that the current Skinny Dip World Record can be broken this year, after numbers fell just short at the 2012 event.
Registration is £10 per person. Participants are encouraged to fund-raise individually. For more information and to register, visit www.northeastskinn ydip2013.eventbrite.co.uk
