Issue Cover

Outdoor Swimmer  |  July 20  


Welcome back to the open water, albeit in a slightly more socially distanced way. This issue we find out what you think of the 'new normal' in outdoor swimming, look at how coaching has changed to accommodate social distancing and I give you some tips on how to make the most of your local open water swimming venue.
In the aftermath of the Black Lives Matters protests we look at the barriers to participation in swimming for black people. We speak to writer Jini Reddy on her search for magic in the landscape in her new book Wanderland. And in what would have been our Olympic issue, Cassie Patten reminisces about her bittersweet open water bronze medal at the Beijing Olympics and Elaine Howley explores the history of open water swimming and the history of Games caught in the turmoil of contemporary events.
In our Travel section we look at what we can expect on our swim trips this year and explore destinations from the Midlands to the Philippines!

A magazine to lift your spirits, give escapism and totally motivate!

I am not an experienced open water swimmer but do enjoy it and enjoy the escapism and health benefits that being outside and swimming can give you. This magazine makes me so excited, I look forward to the next issue each month and then keep dipping back into it when have down time to make a recipe or read a feature more indepth or help me plan life after this current climate. It's beautifully written and photography is stunning. Makes me feel more alive and positive. Really recommend it and perfect gift for a friend! Reviewed 20 April 2020

Outdoor Swimmer

I'm in the US but love all the info and inspiration from the articles. Had signed up the Henley Club to Pub swim but canceled when my daughter moved to San Francisco in February. I thought I'd travel west instead of across The Pond this summer. Doesn't look promising yet. Reviewed 28 March 2020
