It's time to get back in the water! With spring finally here read our guide on how to safely enjoy swimming outdoors – plus our top tips on sea swimming. Our Gear section this issue features our choice of training aids to help you tune up your technique so you can make the most of this month's training sessions from coach Fiona Ford on open water skills. We celebrate open water icon Marilyn Bell and the 1954 marathon swim that turned her into a global swimming star. But outdoor swimming isn’t all about massive distances – we also hear about a swim revival in the Czech Republic in memory of a Holocaust survivor and meet the swimmers of Henley Open Water Swimming Club. Plus: full event listings to plan your summer swims, nutrition, swimrun, injury prevention, event reviews, travel, news, interviews and more of your stunning photography and swim stories.
The cost of the magazine is £5.25 plus postage and packing. And, if you order directly from us, we'll also send you one of our lovely "Swim Wild And Free" swimming hats worth £5.95. These are high quality silicone swimming hats designed exclusively for Outdoor Swimmer by swimmer and artist Nancy Farmer.
