Whether you are training for a marathon swim or for your first one-mile event – or if you just love the freedom of swimming outdoors – this issue has inspiring stories, training advice and wild swimming recommendations for all kinds of swimmers. Are you feeling lucky? If you find a Golden Ticket inserted in this magazine you are the winner of a changing robe from dryrobe worth £129.99. Good luck! Enjoy the magazine and happy swimming.
