MUM Julie Paillin rows in the buff as she prepares for a gruelling Atlantic trek.
The naturist, 39, from Nottingham, aims to complete the 3,000-mile Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge as part of the race’s first mixed-sex crew.
The three women and a fella will raise cash to boost NHS workers’ mental health.
To build up her fitness, she is taking solo trips to a secluded river behind her home and practising her stroke.
But the plucky businesswoman, from Nottingham, has been giving passers-by an eyeful – after opting to train nude.
She said: “Being on the water is so natural to me, having lived on a canal boat for the first half of my life.
“I am a strong believer that if you want to do something enough there are no barriers to making it happen.
“Rowing across the Atlantic is pretty much all I have thought about for the past 18 months.”
