I'm Back Sea Swimming (and Sailing)
It's been 5 months since The Great British Swim and whilst tour talks and media interviews have been incredible, this was amazing to get back in the sea with the Royal Yachting Association as I took my first swim back in British waters through The Needles around the Isle of Wight. It was also great to learn to sail myself since I'm so incredibly indebted to the entire sailing community since swimming 1,780 miles simply isn't possible without understanding the laws of the ocean and so it simply wasn't possible without all that they (and Captain Matt Knight) taught me.
To try sailing yourself, throughout May there are free training training sessions happening around the UK. Visit this link for details: https://www.rya.org.uk/go/startboating

Drafting is a technique that’s well understood in race car driving and cycling. In swimming, the effect can be just as big because water is 800x more dense than air and there’s significantly more resistance in the water than on land. Open water swimming is a fun and exciting sport. One of the reasons it is very different from pool swimming is the concept of drafting. This is where you align yourself with another swimmer(s) to reduce the overall effect of drag due to exploiting the lead swimmer’s slipstream.
