Finland in 'record-breaking' skinny dip

Hundreds of naked swimmers have taken to the water in Finland in a bid to break the world record for the biggest naked swim.

Some 789 people at a music festival in eastern Finland went skinny dipping on Saturday, organisers said, beating the previous record set in Australia by just three, reports said.

Organisers were waiting for Guinness World Records to confirm the record.

It is the third Finnish attempt at the record, Yle news website said.

Previous attempts in Helsinki in 2015 and 2016 each attracted about 300 participants.

Organisers at the Ilosaari Rock music festival in Joensuu had hoped to entice 1,000 people into the chilly water.
