It is not an easy task to grab your feeding bottle when the boat is rocking and you are tossed by the waves at wind force 5.

Share your swim!

You know how it feels to swim in a tranquil lake or tough it out in a turbulent sea. Some days, you glide on the glassy surface feeling powerful and smooth. Other days, you swallow water amid a wild struggle against whitecaps. Some places, the cold water is so penetrating that your hands and feet feel no more. Other places, the warmth wraps you like a blanket, comfortably baking your skin feel. We want photos of these experiences…in the ocean, sea, lake or river, or reservoir. Your visuals will help tell your story. Through your photos, other swimmers can imagine how they would feel in that exact same scenario.

We would like to hear about – and see – your swim in order to share it with other like-minded aquatic adventurers. As you venture past the shoreline, we want to see where you swim in both beautiful and inhospitable locations. Rain or fog, morning or night, tranquil or turbulent, warm or cold, Arctic or tropical, bodysurfing or drafting – including all those you take photos during your short practices, simple dips, wild swims, marathons, channel crossings, stage swims or professional races.
