Swimming, like many things, has its own private language that can take a bit of getting used to. With ever more people taking up open water swimming and perhaps wanting to join organised sessions we’ve heard that the language used can be intimidating and off-putting.
We hope you’ve had a fabulous year swimming in 2013 and are looking forward to an even better one next year. We thought we’d take this opportunity to share some of our plans for 2014. Our aim is to keep providing new and inspiring content to help you enjoy the wonderful sport of open water swimming.
