Naked Boat Trip in conjunction with Torbay Sun Club (4th August 2023)
110 were on board The Pride of Exmouth for the 11th Annual Boat Trip up the River Exe. Sadly the weather let us down, but at least it didn't rain. Fantastic disco on board with Crystal who got everyone up and dancing. After-Party at the Social Club enabled the evening to continue to midnight. Date for Next Year: Friday 9th August 2024
Topsham Skinny Dip (29th July 2023)
50 skinny dippers met at Topsham Outdoor Pool for the second naked swim following a successful event last year. Again, it was in aid of Devon Mind, the mental health charity, and raised over £357.
Fast Rabbit Farm (24th June 2023)
Much better weather than the previous year was enjoyed by 40 or so naturists to enjoy the spectacular valley garden in the South Hams, with Cream Teas. Some guests were staying on at Manor Farm Campsite just up the road.
BareCamp (September 2022)
We might not have had the good weather of previous years, but even a little bit of rain couldn't dampen the spirits of BareCamp 2022. This was bigger than previous years, more marquees, more people, different events and activities, and our first for providing our own catering "Bare Butties", providing breakfast, sandwiches, cakes and hot drinks. Successful outside visits took place with Polden Vineyard, The History Hut and the ever-popular Somerset Cider Brandy Farm.
This year was the return of the Naked 5k/10k run - we had 29 participants, with the winning time on 5k being 22:33 (male) and 29:13 (female); 10k being 45:39 (male) and 61:59 (female).
For the first time we had merchandise available - flags, t-shirts, car stickers and engraved glasses (thank you to Sue & Craig from Two P Pieces).
We raised a significant sum for Devon Mind, The History Hut and donated to Jay's Aim for the hire of a defibrillator.
Mike's bar prices were most amenable with the bar being drunk dry by Sunday night. Also the Rio Night was popular with a drum parade, and the Cheeki-Tiki Cocktail Bar.
Other events were daily craft sessions, Stig Challenge (on an extended Scalextric set), Tai Chi (thank you David), Fishing and Airgun competitions, a film night (with ice-creams), silent discos and music from the Saxabears, jamming sessions.
Importantly, we paused on 9th September to mark the Queen's death, beautifully done by our resident Lay Pastoral Assistant Quinn.
Pie Up In A Brewery (16th July 2022)
Bare Westers enjoyed a cosy evening in the Tap Room of the Exeter Brewery, whilst the outside temperature was in the high twenties. Pie & Mash and local Ale, and entertaining conversation was had by all
