Order Outdoor Swimmer Issue 13 (April 2018) & help support Macmillan

Save yourself a trip to the shops and buy directly from us

Our April issue is our one-year anniversary since rebranding to Outdoor Swimmer, and it's a cracker to get you in the mood for the start of the main outdoor swimming season. On the training front, we've got a couple of kick and pull sets to try out or a fitness and technique boost, and we look at how poor technique may not only slow you down but could also be a factor in shoulder injuries. Our contributor Becky Horsbrugh relates how she became a hero for a day in Bangladesh when she swam across the Bangla Channel. Then, just in case you thought outdoor swimming was a new thing, Richard Nelsson tells us the story of two swimmers from the 1950s who went about swimming in every tarn in the Lake District, naked. 

On a different note, we're very aware of how many swimmers' lives have been touched by cancer, and that many of you use your swimming to raise funds for cancer charities. We have therefore decided this month to donate £1 to Macmillan Cancer Support for every copy of Outdoor Swimmer bought through us directly or sold in retail.
