There’s are plenty of reasons why the Brownsea Island Swim sells out in minutes, finds Simon Griffiths

This is one of the few swims on the calendar each year that you have to be quick and organised for if you want a place, and with good reason. Brownsea Island lies in Poole Harbour and is owned by the National Trust. Much of the land is given over to open space, woodland and a nature reserve, making the island delightful to visit in its own right – which is great if you want to bring along friends and family. At the same time, the facts that the island is a protected area and you need to arrive by ferry put a limit on the number of people this swim can cater for, and entries are capped at around 350. Places usually sell out within minutes of entries opening.

About Outdoor Swimmer

In this issue we explore wild swimming in Scandinavia, where the right to roam extends to swimming outdoors – in some of the world’s most breathtaking scenery. We also bring you reports from some our favourite events of the summer – more swims for you to add to your bucket list! We hear from Howard James and Sabrina Wiedmer about their record breaking swims – the earliest (and coldest) English Channel crossing and the first woman to cross the Dál Raita Channel, respectively. And if that all sounds a bit too hardcore and serious, Dan Abel shows us how to keep our swimming fun. Enjoy the magazine and happy swimming.
