The Outdoor Swimmers’ Handbook
‘An important, inspiring book by someone that has encouraged million of people to experience the wonders and friendships of Britain’s rivers, lakes and seas’ Robert Macfarlane
When swimming we are part of the planet and all the elements again, in a place where moons wane, storms swell and life ebbs and flows throughout the seasons.
Capturing the freewheeling spirit, community and wisdom that defines The Outdoor Swimming Society movement, founder Kate Rew reveals everything you need to know to explore rivers, lakes, seas and estuaries. Sharing tales of her own inspiring swims, Kate explores the rich and varied life of outdoor swimmers, from the physiology of cold to planning lazy hazy downstream swims.
An exquisite guide for beginners and enthusiasts alike, The Outdoor Swimmers’ Handbook will lead you to the shore and become your trusted companion for the adventures ahead.
A really important, inspiring book, written by someone at the heart of the outdoor swimming movement that -- over the last fifteen years -- has encouraged millions of people to experience the wonders and friendships of Britain's rivers, lakes and seas. Rew's book combines hard-won, deeply researched information on how to swim safely and joyfully out-of-doors, with vivid first-hand accounts of swims in astonishing places and with remarkable people. Read on. Dive in. -- Robert Macfarlane
