SALTED

When Raynor and Moth Winn found themselves homeless, they decided to walk the South West Coast Path. Ella Foote meets the writers of The Salt Path

SWIMTERVIEW

How often in life are we told to just keep going? To just put one foot in front of the other and just take one step at a time. It is common advice and action we often take, because we have no other choice. We can’t change our past, our ideas of the future may never work out, but we can take steps in our present. This is exactly what Raynor Winn and her husband Moth did. They found themselves homeless, with no money and no idea what to do. So they put one foot in front of another and walked the South West coast path, all 630 miles of it.

BAD INVESTMENT

Raynor Winn’s first book, The Salt Path, came out earlier this year and quickly became a best seller. It is the best and my favourite book I have read so far this year. I am constantly seeking the next book and author I can swimterview. Sometimes I get sent books, sometimes I discover them through social media and sometimes, like this book, they just talk to me from a bookshop window. My eye was immediately drawn to the beautiful cover, the sea and water illustration pulling me in. Any book that is about the coast or water, I am drawn to like men are drawn to a mermaid’s siren.

About Outdoor Swimmer

A growing number of endurance athletes are swimming for good rather than glory. Perhaps the most prominent of these is Lewis Pugh, UN Patron of the Oceans. We were privileged to join him on a leg of his Long Swim of the length of the English Channel, which he is undertaking to raise awareness of the plastic in our oceans. Elsewhere in the magazine we bust some more technique myths, visit the Galapagos Islands and the Peak District, test the latest outdoor gear for swimming adventures and meet the writers of best-selling book The Salt Path.
