Are you making the most of the water this summer? We're here to help you do just that.

In our July issue:

  • The 'Urban Mermaid' Lindsey Cole recounts her tale of dipping to Scotland, meeting swimmers via social media as she cycled the length of the country;
  • Travel writer Patrick Scott tells of a sacred swim in the river Ganges.
  • If you have long distance challenges planned this summer our regular Olympian contributor, Cassie Patten, gives you top tips on how to recover from a 10km swim.
  • Guest coach Keri-anne Payne continues her series on correct technique, this month looking at body position and rotation.
  • Outdoor training session ideas to help you swim in a pack and advice to help you overcome any fears you have of the open water.
