What is Wild Swimming?

"Usually non-competitive swimming in natural locations ranging from small woodland pools, rivers, and mountain lochs, to lakes, coastal and open seas. Swimmers are usually self-organized, their motivation ranging from a few minutes bobbing in a placid woodland to longer distance ‘A-to-B’ in a river, coastal swims or exploring otherwise inaccessible places."
