First Ever World Naked Sailing Day Tastes Success

The first of its kind World Naked Sailing Day was held in Buffalo in New York on August 1, 20917.


The organizers were quite anxious about putting up such an event and were worried about the number of people that would be taking part in the one-day sailing event. But, to everyone’s surprise, there were many sailors from various countries that took part in this inaugural naked sailing day event.

The World Naked Sailing Day (WNSD) event was held in Buffalo following the grand success of the World Naked Gardening Day and the annual World Naked Bike Ride events. The organizers of the naked sailing event want to make it an annual event like the bike event.
