Cold sea and warm hearts!

Weather: Anything could happen!

Atmosphere: Banter, warm hearts and laughter of the type you only find when swimmers from around the world gather to celebrate their love of water

Scenery: Stunning

If you choose to wear a yellow swim hat then you need to expect the unexpected. Wearing a yellow hat indicates that you are willing to be pushed harder and undertake additional swim challenges in addition to those timetabled #HITtheWALL.

About Outdoor Swimmer

A growing number of endurance athletes are swimming for good rather than glory. Perhaps the most prominent of these is Lewis Pugh, UN Patron of the Oceans. We were privileged to join him on a leg of his Long Swim of the length of the English Channel, which he is undertaking to raise awareness of the plastic in our oceans. Elsewhere in the magazine we bust some more technique myths, visit the Galapagos Islands and the Peak District, test the latest outdoor gear for swimming adventures and meet the writers of best-selling book The Salt Path.
