The third year of the event saw almost 70 skinny-dippers skipping into the sea at Pembroke.

‘This is all about having a bit of fun and raising money for a good cause,’ said co-organiser Ian Tonks.

‘This year our chosen charities are Pink Ladies and Male Uprising Guernsey, so there is a bit for the boys and a bit for the girls.’

Since it began the charity event has raised over £8,000 and Mr Tonks was confident they would pass the £10,000 mark this year.

Last year the event took place in October in freezing conditions and all the swimmers were happy on Sunday to be warmed by a balmy September sun, even if it meant they were a few more onlookers than most had expected.
