Spring into your swim!

As temperatures start rising we have a range of swim costumes for all shapes and sizes, along with swim accessories to transition from pool to pond. We’re particularly excited to welcome the Puffin Swim Eco Billy Swim Float to our kit bag - the first biodegradable swim float to be introduced to the UK. As ever our green dot highlights where products are using eco-friendly materials.

Of course training goes beyond the water and we’ve also got a selection of yoga and pilates kit to help build core stability, shoulder strength and alignment. Swimming may or may not be the new yoga, but yoga and pilates can definitely help you improve performance in the water and prevent injury.

Tested by swimmers for swimmers, a big thank you to Charlotte Simon, Brigid Constantine, Kate North, Mick Hinde, Ian Clarke, and our team Jonathan, Jo and Simon at Outdoor Swimmer HQ for putting the kit through its paces. Alice Gartland

”This doesn’t feel like a ‘big girls’ costume. A little difficult to get on over generous hips and the lower back cut-out feels a little exposed - but felt great in the water.” Charlotte

We chat with our new guest coach and cover star Olympian Keri-anne Payne about her coaching philosophy, contributing editor Ella Foote meets some swimmers in a supermarket car park, Elaine Howley tells the story of small and repulsive mermaids and Mike Morris slips through time to meet a Victorian swimming champion. And we have two new regular features starting this issue: Eco Heroes, in which we celebrate people and companies striving to save the planet; and Wild About You, where we play matchmaker for solo swimmers looking for love. Plus Plus, how to train for your first open water mile as well as more long distance challenges, training day menus, swimming with cerebral palsy, a dream swim trip in the Maldives and comprehensive UK and international event listings to help you plan your summer swims.
