“LIVE IN THE SUNSHINE, SWIM THE SEA, DRINK THE WILD AIR”

JONATHAN COWIE EDITOR

As the British summer fades and we put the finishing touches to our October/November 2016 issue, I have been busily entering races and events in the New Year. So far in my diary I have a kryathlon in Prague (a cold water swim, run and cross-country ski, in case you needed to ask!), a winter swimming championships in Sweden and a 24-hour relay swim in Guildford. As water temperatures begin to dip, many outdoor swimmers hang up their swimming costumes and wetsuits for the season; however, for some the party never ends. In this issue we celebrate a summer of swimming, but if you don’t already swim outdoors all-year-round I would urge you to give it a go. As it gets cooler, decrease the amount of time you spend in the water as you become acclimatised to the cold. In our next issue we will be exploring the world of winter swimming and cold water swimming championships so you can put your new-found skills to good use!

About Outdoor Swimmer

In this issue we explore wild swimming in Scandinavia, where the right to roam extends to swimming outdoors – in some of the world’s most breathtaking scenery. We also bring you reports from some our favourite events of the summer – more swims for you to add to your bucket list! We hear from Howard James and Sabrina Wiedmer about their record breaking swims – the earliest (and coldest) English Channel crossing and the first woman to cross the Dál Raita Channel, respectively. And if that all sounds a bit too hardcore and serious, Dan Abel shows us how to keep our swimming fun. Enjoy the magazine and happy swimming.
