New swim spots 2021 (finally)

Published: Jul 6th, 2021 | Author: Digger

I’ve finally been to some new swim spots (two near Winchester) http://www.diggersworld.net/wild-swimming/new-wild-swims/


Swimming back on

Published: Apr 2nd, 2021 | Author: Digger

I wasn’t aware that outdoor swimming wasn’t allowed due to Covid, but apparently it is now permitted so that’s good (maybe this only relates to those pools full of chemicals I know some people like to swim in)

Back from this years Swim the Door and will be uploading photos over the next week.


Chile wild swim photos added

Published: Mar 28th, 2015 | Author: Digger

I’ve uploaded details of a lake swim in Chile. I thoughts I’d have others but when I thought about it all those swims were in the sea (which by my own definition of “wild swimming” for some reason doesn’t count!)


Chile photos uploaded

Hi. I’ve just uploaded photos from the Argentina trip showing scenery, geology, archaeology, vineyards, streets, buses, animals, people and water (not all entirely serious!!).

Not good start to wild swimming year!

Published: Feb 9th, 2013 | Author: Digger

Icy and snowy conditions across Britain are once again affecting the start of the wild swimming season. Fortunately the Club 14-74 “Easter Sunshine Scottish Holiday” has been booked by Ruth so there is at last something to look forward to. Traditionally the Scottish Easter Holiday is the start of my wild swimming season.
