Beachgoers in Vera, Spain, got quite an eyeful when 729 nudists went for a group skinny dip in the Mediterranean Sea in a bid to break the skinny dipping world record. They were apparently successful, surpassing the previous world record set by 506 free spirits in New Zealand last year. Only around 600 were expected at the event. Vera Mayor Jose Carmelo Jorge was pleased with the turnout, calling the mass nude swim a "tremendous success." Organized by the town of Vera and the Spanish Naturism Federation, the swimmers showed up to Playa El Playazo beach in bathing suits before disrobing and taking a collective dip in the Mediterranean around noon. Though funds raised during the event will be donated to charity, the record-breaking attempt was meant to bolster tourism in the small resort town of Vera, which is home to several nudist beaches and residential zones.
