Nude plunge planned for New Year’s Day

The clothing-optional Polar ‘Bare’ Plunge is planned for Jan. 1 at 1 p.m. at Crescent Rock.

A charity event to ring in the “nude” year is once again planned for the south  end of Crescent Beach – near what local naturist groups refer to as “Crescent Rock.”

The clothing-optional Polar ‘Bare’ Plunge – a joint effort between the Skinnydippers Recreation Club and the Surrey United Naturists – is planned for Jan. 1 at 1 p.m.

Participation is free, but organizers ask that those taking part bring cash donations, which will benefit War Amps’ programs.

For those wishing to bare a little less of themselves while still ringing in 2015, White Rock’s annual Polar Bear Swim is back for another year, too.

The 45th annual event – which this year is co-ordinated by the five local rotary clubs, local businesses and RCM-SAR5 Crescent Beach search and rescue, after decades of being organized by the now-defunct Lions Club – is set for noon, Jan. 1 at White Rock beach, near the city’s iconic rock.
