Pirates Cove Nude Beach in CaliforniaThreatened

Pirates Cove Beach along the Central California coastline

The battle continues. First San Onofre Beach comes under threat and NAC (with AANR support) went to court to block the disingenuous re-interpretation of the Cahill Policy to make nudity illegal. That battle continues with San Onofre still clothing-optional for the moment. Read NACS update on that situation here: http://www.naturistaction.org/sanonofre

Now Pirates Cove might be bought up by San Luis Obispo County in an attempt to regulate and remove nude use from this beach. County ownership of this fine beach, that has had traditional nude use for years, will result in the county being able to enforce county anti-nudity laws when in the past use as private property allowed nude use. A NAC Alert is forthcoming ...

From a RixPlace Posting:

Dear Naturist,

If you've been to Pirate's Cove on California's San Luis Obispo County coast, you know it as a delightful naturist beach. A brief write-up is on the Bay Area Naturist Resources page here: http://www.bayareanaturists.org/resource.html#ccoast

It's a beautiful beach which I'd hate to lose to nudity. It's about the only well-established nude beach on the central California coast.

Unfortunately, SLO County Supervisors plan to buy the beach and then require clothing there. The plan is being rushed through and there is little time for us Naturists to act to stop it.

As soon as possible, naturists who regularly visit Pirates Cove need to network into a team to oppose the County's plan, or at least to modify it to allow continued nude use.

Please carefully read these news three articles ASAP and advise me if you are willing and able join a naturist contingent to fight this:

"Plan could put some clothes on Pirates Cove"
Bob Cuddy, San Luis Obispo Tribune, Sunday, October 5, 2008

"SLO County moves closer to ending nude sunbathing at local beach"
Carina Corral, KSBY 6 News, Tuesday, October 7, 2008

"County wants to spend millions to rid Pirates Cove of nudists"
Mark Fleming, SLOpinion, Tuesday, October 7, 2008

If you're a regular visitor to Pirates' Cove and are willing to serve on a team to keep it nude, please reply to me immediately, giving your name, address, phone number, and e-mail address, and letting me know in which ways you can help.

The Naturist Action Committee (NAC) is alerted to this issue and will soon be issuing an Action Alert on the subject. NAC board member Allen Baylis, who was key in the recent naturist victory at San Onofre, will be coordinating the team--once we establish it.

Whether or not you're able to be personally involved, please give generously to support the Naturist Action Committee. You may mail a check to
