Loch Lomond, Scotland – Sunset Swim
by Nina Stobie
An ex club swimmer, now focusing on open water swimming. Living on the west coast of Scotland I’m incredibly lucky to have an abundance of stunning Scottish lochs nearby to train in. Have a few swim challenges lined up for 2022, mainly focusing on building distance swims, including the length of Lake Windermere. However, I’ll also be trying to step out of my comfort zone a little with some sea swims including the Gulf of Corryvreckan.
Big Island (Ponta dos Meros)
By Paulo Costa
I´m a daily swimmer (pool, open water) born in Niterói-RJ, but living for a long time at the beautiful João Pessoa (PB, Brazil). My next challenge is to make a solo swim at 14 Bis Ultramarathon.
By Shannon Coates
I’m a competitive Ironman triathlete that has fallen in love with open water swimming! When I decide to take a break from chasing my Ironman goals, I’d love to explore marathon open water swimming and attempt a channel swim!
North Channel 2021
By Peter Plavec
An ice and marathon swimmer.
And thank you to all the swimmers and voters who participated
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.
