Open Water Swimming
For those of you keen to do a bit of open water swimming this summer, you are almost spoiled for choice.
With venues for training soon to start opening up for the season and with the rapid growth in the sport there are plenty of open water races too. There are races to suit everyone with distances from 1⁄2 a mile to the marathon 10k and in a variety of water conditions from lakes, reservoirs, rivers and the sea.
The open water magazine H2Open is sponsoring a national ranking swim series, for those who wish to participate you complete 3 out of seven races and they will
then rank you against all the other competitors. For more details see:
