Outdoor swimming with smiles and shivers

Outdoor swimming is a tremendous hobby to enjoy. Healthy and sociable, it is pleasing to all who include it as part of their lifestyle.

Outdoor swimming with smiles and shivers – yes, that’s what happens!

Following the launch of the two outdoor swimming books available from www.altern8ives.com readers can enjoy the world of swimming during all seasons through the eyes of the swimmers who do.

These books provide a variety of stories by the swimmers in the swimmers’ own words and favourite photographs. Learn about who swims where and why they have taken-up the pleasure of outdoor swimming. Read about their own experiences and view the locations they’ve encountered while happy swimming. The two books cover all types of swimming throughout the year. They provide swimmers’ first hand accounts of the challenges of swimming events, such as the English Channel and Ice miles.
