A sport for life

So, we all know that swimming is a sport for life, and this month we’ve got a myriad of kit for current, aspiring and future open water champions, including Yonda and Huub’s junior wetsuits. Plus, as over 60% of people in the UK now wear prescription glasses or contact lenses, we test out a range of prescription goggles and our kit bag has all the latest swimwear and gadgets.

A big thank you to the testers for putting the kit through its paces – by swimmers for swimmers – these products have been tested from the waves of Durley to the lanes of local leisure centres. Well done everyone!

About Outdoor Swimmer

Journeys can take many forms. This issue adventurer Alastair Humphreys tells how his account of busking across Spain became a personal memoir of a life lived adventurously; 'Urban Mermaid' Lindsey Cole recounts her tale of dipping to Scotland, meeting swimmers via social media as she cycled the length of the country; and travel writer Patrick Scott tells of a sacred swim in the river Ganges. If you have long distance challenges planned this summer our regular Olympian contributor, Cassie Patten, gives you top tips on how to recover from a 10km swim. Guest coach Keri-anne Payne continues her series on correct technique, this month looking at body position and rotation. And we have outdoor training session ideas to help you swim in a pack and advice to help you overcome any fears you have of the open water. As always we have the most comprehensive UK and international event listings to help you plan your summer swims.
