adjective, noun - Naked is to swim without a wetsuit or any non-neoprene swim cap in an open body of water. In the open water swimming community, a naked swim is not skinny-dipping (swimming without clothes); rather it is performed with a porous swimsuit, goggles, and possibly, a swim cap and ear plugs.

Naked is also the name of the division or category where open water swimmers compete without a wetsuit or any kind of neoprene.
