Just because you’re an outdoor swimmer doesn’t necessarily mean you want to swim the English Channel, says Kevin Goodall


Kevin Goodall is another subscriber who’s been with us since Issue 1. He describes himself as a “rambler” of the swimming world and he’s always puzzled that people invariably ask him when he’s going to swim the Channel when they learn he takes the occasional outdoor dip. “To me, this is like asking a man who’s just walked a couple of miles to a country pub whether he’s planning to climb Everest,” he says. “They wouldn’t ask him why he didn’t just walk the same distance on a treadmill in the gym yet they are surprised that I should choose to swim in a river over the pool!”

About Outdoor Swimmer

In our fifth anniversary issue we take a look back at the first five years of H2Open magazine as well as looking to the future and asking ,where will swimming take you in 2016? Whatever your level of swimming, there is a challenge out there for you! If that challenge is a winter swimming competition, we have plenty of top tips and expert advice on swimming in icy water. But if the cold doesn’t really do it for you, we have destination reports from sunny Bermuda and the German lakes. In this issue we also profile four young BLDSA swimmers as well as catching up with open water swimming champions Keri-anne Payne and Cassie Patten. Plus all the usual training, technique and nutrition advice and gear reviews. Happy swimming!
