  • NESD | Northumberland | 29 September 2024




    Not a BN event but many members take part in what’s probably the largest UK skinny dip and definitely a worthy, charitable cause.

    Note from the organiser on her Facebook page: 


    Druridge Bay has been experiencing much higher tides over recent years. Higher perhaps than ever before. Last week during an exceptionally high spring tide I took a trip up to see for myself. Many of the dunes had been washed away and even some of the fields were being threatened by the tides. It was indeed remarkable.

    A similarly high tide height is predicted for 22nd September making a mass dip both impractical and entirely unsafe. After consulting the experts on the matter I have taken the difficult decision of POSTPONING NESD2024 UNTIL SUNDAY 29TH SEPTEMBER.

    I feel sad that we can no longer dip on the Autumn Equinox as planned but Mother Nature calls the shots. And we must adjust accordingly. My decision has been fully endorsed by water safety experts, Northumberland County Council and Tyneside and Northumberland Mind.

    The tide will remain high for the entire month of September and we may need to modify some aspects of the event in 2024. Rest assured that retaining the unique atmosphere is paramount and we will do everything we can to bring all the ingredients of NESD that you know and love. I promise to keep you all updated and press on with registration at the earliest opportunity. Although there will undoubtedly be some delays.  Please do bear with me.

    My sincere apologies. This specific set of environmental factors were beyond my control and could not have been foreseen.

    Thank you all ways for your understanding and support of our wonderful event 🙏🏼
