Dimanche 29 juin 2014, c’est la “Journée sans Maillot”
Sunday, June 29, 2014 is the “Day without Swimsuit”
I’ve previously been aware that Spanish naturists have a day where they promote a ‘dia sin ropa’ (a day without swimsuits -it’s in July) but I’ve just recently learned that the French have an equivalent, a ‘journee sans maillot’.
As far as I’m aware, the International Naturist Federation try to promote naturism by encouraging people (naturist and non naturist alike) to leave their swimsuit at home and just use their birthday suit for swimming and sunbathing, even if the beach is ‘textile’.
I recently heard a rumour that the Spanish variant, in the Vera Playa area, is to include and entire weekend of events, with a nude run through the area on the Saturday, another attempt to break the World Skinny Dip record on the Sunday (the actual ‘dia sin ropa’ -day without swimsuits) and then the nearby water park block-booked on Monday for the exclusive use of naturists. Still waiting for confirmation of this, and still considering us heading out there for that weekend, but I’ve not booked yet. I think it all sounds like an extremely exciting, positive range of events that can only show naturism in a positive light.
Even if we don’t make it out for the weekend, we’ll certainly be covering both the French version in June, and the Spanish version, in July here on SLN!
please note: if you hear of other national naturist associations doing anything similar, let me know and we’ll do our best to a) keep the readership informed and b) do our usual ‘replication in SL’ coverage.
