Next Monday evening, 20 July, I'm delighted to let you know that my guest will be Jonathan Cowie
Jonathan is the editor of Outdoor Swimmer magazine, the only printed magazine in the world dedicated to swimming outdoors. He is a year-round swimmer with a particular love of very cold water. He has competed in ice swimming competitions around the world, including a winter triathlon that involved skiing instead of cycling! He is a qualified open water coach with a particular love of introducing new swimmers to the open water. His next challenge is to complete some classic British long distance swims, such as Windermere. When not injured he also loves trail running and swimrun. You will see from the main image that he is no stranger to skinny dipping.
Outdoor Swimmer recently ran an excellent feature on BN's Great British Skinny Dip and illustrated it with uncensored images - the rest of the media world, take note! Jonathan has kindly agreed for us to reproduce it in the next issue of BN magazine.
I'll be talking to Jonathan about his work on the magazine and outdoor swimming generally, and will ask him to let us know about the best places. We'll also talk about skinny-dipping and the GBSD and how we could work together. Our plans for 2021also include working closely with the British Heart Foundation, where the idea of charity skinny-dips has excited many of our contacts, around the country.
It's going to be a good one...please book your place as soon as you can!
