Nice team outfits!

‘Completers’ rather than ‘competors!’

We are a group of swimmers from Petersfield who call ourselves ‘The Jubilee Dippers.’ We swim throughout the year in the sea at Hayling Island and Southsea. We are also members of Petersfield Triathlon Club. Here we are after completing the 10km swim on the last day of the Open Water Swimming Festival in Barbados. Although technically it was a race we classed ourselves as ‘completers’ rather than ‘competors.’ We are more used to cold water so Barbados was our most exotic (and warmest) destination yet – although not all of us could make it.

About Outdoor Swimmer

In our January issue we tell the strange outdoor swimming history of Mao Zedong, we test a chilly willy combobulator and ponder the female gender bias in cold water swimming, leap off a waterfall in Yorkshire while discussing ways to combat the winter blues, and take up stand-up paddleboarding. Plus, our pick of our favourite events in 2019 to help you plan your new year adventures, and our resident Olympian Cassie Patten gives her top tips for motivation to help you achieve your swim goals. And just in case it all gets too much, we look at how to avoid burnout and show you how to strengthen your shoulders and avoid rotator cuff injuries.
