The world record for the largest simultaneous skinny-dip has apparently been set in Perth, Australia, by 790 participants.

The event appears to have surpassed the previous record of 744 set in Gisborne, New Zealand, in 2013, according to Perth Now. Guinness World Records still has to confirm the new feat, however.

“It was very nerve-racking in the lead-up, but then everyone started dropping their sarongs and strangely it felt so normal because if you weren’t naked you were the odd one out,” said Heidi Anderson, a Perth Now columnist who participated in the event.

Local media reported that the mass skinny-dip raised money and awareness for the Butterfly Foundation, a group that helps those affected by eating disorders.

“I had huge body image issues over the last few years and over the last three years I have been working on myself. This was the next step towards embracing who I am,” said Anderson.
