Outdoor Swimmer  |  August 2018  

In our August issue we look at accessible wild swimming and ask how we can help more people get in the water. In our Training section we bust a few swimming myths, show you how to tune up your catch using paddles and explain how to think your way out of a performance slump. And we explore swimming spots in Wale, Albania, the Lake District, South Africa and Mallorca. Plus the usual heady mix of inspiring stories, stunning photography, interviews, news and gear reviews.
  • Guarantee of inspiring outdoor swimming features and advice
  • Free access to the Swimrunner supplement
  • Links to the latest downstream podcast created by the team behind Outdoor Swimmer
  • Easy to read, mobile friendly magazine

It is full of great stories, and the reading the letters page makes me feel a little bit more normal. Apparently other people like swimming in rivers lochs and lakes as well. Reviewed 18 June 2020
