About Outdoor Swimmer

Hello November – log fires, bobble hats and serene autumn swimming. Crisp water, falling leaves and a sense of calm before the icy thrill of winter, autumn is one of my favourite times of the year to swim. If you want to try extending your swimming season this year, a little bit of neoprene can go a long way – read our reviews of hats, gloves, socks and accessories in this month's Tried & Tested gear guide. In this issue we explore the benefits of cold water swimming on mental health. In 'Unsung Heroes' we celebrate wild swimmers, many of whom use their daily dip to help combat depression, grief and pain. And swim guide Pete Kelly takes a group of swimmers from mental health charity Growing Well for a cold water dip in Windermere. As always, this issue brings you training advice, destination and event reports, stunning swim photography and the most comprehensive UK and international event listings to help you plan your aquatic adventures.
