Swimming weather

Don’t blame it on the weatherman

In Matt Gaw’s new book, In All Weathers, Matt immerses himself in the elements and discovers there is more than just good or bad weather. Ella Foote meets Matt in sunshine, they swim in the rain and shelter from the wind while they chat all things meteorology

We all love to immerse ourselves in cool, wild water but have you ever purposefully stood out in heavy rain to see how that feels? No? What if you got the same benefits as you did from your outdoor dip, would you spend more time embracing the rain rather than moaning about it?
