Challenge of the Month

Every month in Outdoor Swimmer magazine we set a challenge. Past challenges include cold water synchro swimming, how many hats you can get on your head and what is the smallest body of water you can swim in. The July challenge is one for our more musical readers. The new issue of Outdoor Swimmer magazine features adventurer Alastair Humphreys playing the violin – as well as native Indian flutes and bongos being played in the water. Can you do any better? A full aquatic orchestra? Share on Instagram and tag @outdoorswimmer
