Issue Cover

Outdoor Swimmer  |  October 21  

This issue we are putting the ‘out’ in outdoor swimming and speaking to LGBTQ+ swimmers about their acceptance in the outdoor community. Throughout this issue we meet some wonderful humans who are helping make outdoor swimming, and the outdoors in general, a more diverse community: the lido volunteers working towards making their pools more accessible to disabled swimmers; the transgender swimmer swimming every day of the year; and the writer aiming to get more women accessing the outdoors.
Another incredible human achieving amazing things is Courtney Paulk. We speak to the American swimmer who has just become the first person to complete the Double Triple Crown – two-way crossings of each of the Triple Crown swims!
Elsewhere in the magazine, we look at winter challenges, find out the best places for autumn dips, explore sauna culture in the UK, learn how drills and practice can make you a better swimmer, take a dip on the dark side and find out what the best freestyle stroke-style is for open water.
We hope you enjoy the issue.
