We’ve just had this message from Janet and her friend from Brighton : Thank you both – my Brighton clubmate and I have just come back from a wonderful holiday based on the swims in your book (well, 3.5 of them). Magical.
Perhaps we should be getting a commission from the English Riviera Tourist Board!!

We’re responsible for an engagement! See the wonderful message below we received from happy reader Alison Shearer:
“We were bought this book as a gift a few weeks ago by my partner’s mum. I have been into wild swimming/underwater photography and spearfishing a long time and live near Tavistock but my partner is new to it and lives in Torquay. We have literally read every bit of this book repeatedly and it has been a weekend mission for the last few weekends to discover and reccy all these fab places. As he said he has lived in torquay his whole life but didn’t realise half these places were here. We have paddled Fishcombe, Maidencombe, Watcombe, Goodrington, Oddicombe and got gloriously soaked in the recent storm at Meadfoot. We snorkelled Redgate and swam under London Bridge arch on a choppy evening and saw lots of compass jellies. Then the next day climbed on top of it and ended up skinny dipping( in underwear due to not planning a swim and spontaneity getting the better of us!) and tombstoning in the quarry below with the local kids! This weekend was about Elberry and sea caves. On Sunday we walked round Livermead and Corbyn at low tide and at the Hindu temples he totally surprised me and got down on one knee and proposed next to the crashing waves. Couldn’t imagine a more romantic setting and want to thank you guys so much for opening up a new world to us.”
There you go: swimming changes lives!
We’ve had some nice press coverage in the last few months, including in Coast Magazine, the Western Morning News, and H2Open Magazine.
