November Swimming Times - open water special

Open water continues to make the news with David Walliams swimming the length of the Thames and the Big Celebrity Swim featuring the likes of Ronan Keating and Jenny Frost crossing the Irish Sea.

To celebrate everything that makes outdoor swimming such a unique addition to the aquatic lifestyle, the Swimming Times threw in a 48-page open water supplement with their November edition.

Here's a taster of what you can read inside:
