IN-DEPTH TEST MEN’S RACING SUITS

Arena R-Evo+ £229 Finis Vapor $399.99

I’ve been a competitive masters swimmer (on and off ) for the past 10 years and got into open water about seven years ago. I’m far from being the best in my age group, but do like to push myself and am keen to explore ways to maximise performance. Having committed to the ASA Masters Open Water Nationals in Sheffield this year, where I knew the competition would be stiffand most athletes would be where the straps sit and under the arms. I forgot this when I wore the Arena for the first time and had scars for two weeks as a consequence. Don’t let that happen to you.

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.
