Outdoor Swimming author Kate Rew shares her Unforgettable Swim

Share your next Unforgettable Swim for a chance to win £500 to spend at speedo.com

Outdoor swimming author, Kate Rew, has become the latest swimmer to share the story of her love of the water as part of Speedo’s ‘Unforgettable Swims’ initiative.

Giving like-minded swimmers a forum to share real life stories about their memorable moments, www.unforgettableswims.com is an online community aimed at celebrating swimming.

Since launching earlier this year, the site has attracted dozens of inspiring stories including that of Kate, who describes an early love of wild swimming developed during summer days on her family’s farm in Devonshire. The childhood expeditions developed into a lifelong passion, prompting Kate to author the book ‘Wild Swim’, celebrating some of the best swims across Britain.

Kate is also the founder of the Outdoor Swimming Society, an organisation with the aim of harnessing and growing the popularity of wild swimming. The Outdoor Swimming Society unites thousands of outdoor swimmers across the country, with some of its members having also shared their Unforgettable Swim story on the Speedo website.
