Le Grand Prix

Roger Cole won the readers’ prize in the April/May 2015 issue of H2Open – a swimming holiday on the French Riviera
Group swim at Cap d’Antibes, with Julien Sauvage

I never believed that anyone actually won competitions in magazines. With my natural cynicism l was highly suspicious of a voicemail message from a strange number informing me that I had won a holiday. Which I promptly ignored. Followed by another. These scammers were persistent, I thought. They weren’t going to catch me out, oh no. Then a phone call from Simon at H2Open. Did I remember entering the ‘Swim the Riviera’ competition? Um... yes. Had someone from France tried to contact me? Um. That would be the ‘scammers’ then. Penny dropped. These things are for real. I’ve won!

Have you ever wanted to swim an Ice Mile? We have expert advice on how to train safely for one of swimming's most extreme challenges. And if you like a bit of trail running with your outdoor swimming, we take an in-depth look at the endurance sport of swimrun. We have inspiring travel features on Italy, Scotland and the French Riviera. And as it's Christmas we have some delicious cake recipes to try! Plus all the usual training advice and sessions, news, interviews, inspirational stories and event listings for 2016.
