It's A Deal For Outdoor Swimmer(s)

Mark Johnston of the Flathead Lake Open Water Swimmers in Montana is working together with Simon Griffiths, the founder and publisher of Outdoor Swimmer Magazine to increase the North American content and number of event listings.

He explains, "Outdoor Swimmer is on a mission to help people live more adventurous, healthier and happier lives through swimming outdoors. The UK-based magazine has a global outlook and covers swimming events and challenges around the world as well as publishing training advice, inspirational swimming stories, news and event listings.

Simon announced the price for an annual print subscription with 12 issues to North America from £90 to £84 (about US$116 to US$108) and confirmed its commitment to expanding coverage of open water swimming on the continent.

The magazine was previously known as H2Open and rebranded in April 2017 while it increased its publication frequency. Under the editorial direction of Jonathan Cowie, the magazine covers all aspects of swimming outside from wild winter swimming, long distance adventures, swimming holidays and racing.

For example, in the current November issue, Elaine Howley writes about the history of open water swimming in Canada while US-based Gavin Maitland shares his moving story of how open water swimming helps him live a fulfilling and active life following a double lung transplant

Griffiths says, “Outdoor Swimming is booming and we’re really proud to be part of a movement that’s good for people in so many ways. It’s fun, it keeps you fit, it’s good for your mental health and it inspires people to treat the environment with respect. It also connects people around the world. We know we already have committed subscribers around the world and we’d really love to reach out to more readers in North America.”

Swimmers who would like to receive a free copy of Outdoor Swimmer can fill in the form here.

Simon adds, "Outdoor Swimmer would also be very happy to hear from event organizers in North America [info@outdoorswimmer.com] at so that their events can be added to Outdoor Swimmer’s listings, and also from potential contributors for event reviews and other content relevant to North American swimmers."

The Other Shore

The Other Shore follows world record holder and legendary swimmer Diana Nyad as she comes out of a thirty-year retirement to re-attempt an elusive dream: swimming 103 miles non-stop from Cuba to Florida without the use of a shark cage. Her past and present collide in her obsession with a feat that nobody has ever accomplished. At the edge of The Devil’s Triangle, tropical storms, sharks, venomous jellyfish, and one of the strongest ocean currents in the world, all prove to be life-threatening realities. Timothy Wheeler’s documentary brings Diana Nyad’s extraordinary adventure to life as Diana sets out to prove that will and determination are all you need to make the unimaginable possible.

2014 Open Water Swimming Almanac

An Almanac for Open Water Swimming

An almanac is essentially a body of knowledge which is so complete that it enables people in different fields to make predictions about the future of their respective industries.

This, for example, was the purpose of the traditional farmers almanacs. It enabled farmers to determine as accurately as possible which crops to plant for the greatest harvests in a given year.

But the farmers almanac was just one example among many.
There are, of course, many different kinds of almanacs.

In fact, there is even one for open water swimming...

The trends are very clear.
The tide is rising for open water swimming.
