STAR LETTER

I wild swim a lot and went for a lovely swim with my mother at Farleigh Hungerford Swimming Club in late summer. The River Frome is particularly cold (much colder than the Avon, our other local river). Mum swam with me in 15 degrees. I was so proud of her for managing the temperature without any acclimatisation swims. Already too cold for most fair weather swimmers we had the river to ourselves. It was a really lovely moment, which she has caught in this poem (and I do laugh when I get into cold water). Her mum swam daily every morning, throughout her life, so we really associate water and swimming with Granny Mary (she was also a writer working under the name Mary Dawson).

About Outdoor Swimmer

Outdoor swimming is not just about sport. It is about being part of a community, about fun and challenge, travel and escape from the day-to-day grind. It is about the thrill of feeling alive. It is being sat at your desk and dreaming of next weekend’s swimming adventure. If you find it hard to keep the thrill going through the dark days of winter, we’ve got 12 ways to help keep you motivated, including six top tips for cold water swimming. If you need something to look forward to, check out our Travel and Events sections for races and holiday destinations for summer 2017. Elsewhere in the magazine we hear from the Wild Swimming Brothers about their trip to Norway to tackle the world’s biggest whirlpools, and the truly inspirational Sarah Thomas talks to us about her mammoth 80-mile swim in Lake Powell. Enjoy the magazine and happy swimming.
