Wild Swimming – The Fastest Growing UK Sport?

Lake Windermere is to host its very first Wild Swimming event this saturday attracting hundreds of visitors to a Lakeland beauty spot.

According to In-Cumbria: “Wild swimming is one of the fastest growing sports in the UK.” Saturdays event will introduce newcomers to the sport with canoe safety, speedboat safety and on site first-aiders provided by organisers. Participants will include entries from previous team GB and élite athletes.
