Img 20190522 105216

Outdoor Swimmer is an independent magazine published by swimmers for swimmers. And just to prove it, the new issue has our sales executive Joanne Jones on the front cover! The shot was taken at this Easter's 2Swim4Life event where myself, Joanne and Outdoor Swimmer founder Simon each swam eight miles over 24 hours in a 24-hour, 24-mile relay.
