THIS MONTH WE SWAM WITH… the Grimsby Water Rats

Ella and the Water Rats

So I am going to come clean, when I started doing Club Focus for the magazine I had all sorts of ideas of where I might travel. Up to swim with a small shoal of swimmers on the Isle of Skye in turquoise water and clear pools… Or perhaps the lush green Yorkshire Dales… Grimsby didn’t occur to me as an option; however, when the Grimsby Water Rats got in touch I didn’t hesitate to plan my trip.

About Outdoor Swimmer

FIT FOR LIFE One of the great things about outdoor swimming is that it can be done by people of all ages. Whether it is wild swimming with your kids or entering races in the super vet category, swimming can be part of your life whatever your age. Our July issue has a Fit for Life theme. As we swim through the ages we look at how we can encourage more young people to swim in the open water, how we should adapt our training as we get older, how one school transformed its swimming lessons and how we can use strength training to combat age-related muscle loss. Plus, we meet swimmers of all ages to discuss their relationship with swimming outdoors.
