Hundreds brave cold for inaugural Dark MOFO nude swim


Read for instance Limelight, ABC, and The Mercury

Hundreds of people have stripped off and swum nude in the River Derwent in Hobart as part of the Dark MOFO winter festival. The water temperature was about 12 degrees, but the air temperature had fallen to a mere two degrees at Sandy Bay, prompting a great deal of squealing amongst the hardy bathers.

A supplementary “Prude swim” was arranged for the more modest swimmer later this morning, although it would seem unlikely that there would be any media interest in such a tame sideshow event.
