One of the things I most love about being editor of Outdoor Swimmer is the fact that every day I hear inspiring swim stories – both epic challenges and everyday adventures. Our new issue covers adventure big and small – from swimming round the British Isles to dipping every day in December.
We meet adventurer Ross Edgley after his Great British Swim around the British Isles and follow the Dipathon Divas on their icy quest to swim every day in December.
Simon Murie explores the geographical, political and mythological motivations of his swims and we speak with Katie Maggs about our relationship with the natural world and the restorative powers of sea swimming.
We swim with adventure queen Anna McNuff; explore the special swimming relationship between sisters; and join urban mermaid Lindesy Cole on her swim of the river Thames.
Plus, our usual mix of training features, swimming destinations and inspiring stories – as well as worldwide event listings and a Christmas gift guide.
The December issue goes on sale in WH Smiths tomorrow or save a trip to the shops and buy your copy directly from us now.
