Simon Griffiths reflects on eight years of publishing H2Open and Outdoor Swimmer

This month marks eight years since we published the first issue of H2Open Magazine, which went on to become Outdoor Swimmer in April 2017. A lot has changed in those eight years, not least our name! Before launching the magazine, I had many meetings with swimmers, coaches and businesses connected to swimming to see what they thought of the idea of a magazine about swimming outside. While in general the feedback was positive, a few people wondered if we could find enough content for a second issue. In truth, we had very little idea what stories would go into Issue 2 but I pretended I did and, luckily, 62 issues later, we’re still being sent brilliant stories to share.
