Website upgrade

We’ve just upgraded our website with the capability to list open water swimming venues and events. Clubs with an interest in open water swimming can also register and hence advertise their existence to potential new members.
To submit a club, event or venue you need to become a registered user and request access as a club official, venue manager or event organiser.
Please make use of these facilities. The more people who do, the more useful they become.

I created Outdoor Swimmer in 2011 (initially as H2Open Magazine) as an outlet for my passion for swimming outdoors. I've been a swimmer and outdoor swimmer for as long as I remember. Swimming has made a huge difference to my life and I want to share its joys and benefits with as many people as possible. I am also the author of Swim Wild & Free: A Practical Guide to Swimming Outdoors 365 a Year and I provide one-to-one support to swimmers through Swim Mentoring.
