A Guide to Open Water Swimming.
Alice is founder of A Lotus Rises the swim blog for women who love open water, and on a mission to increase visibility, access and participation of women in swimming. Alice is Contributing Editor of Outdoor Swimmer Magazine and a qualified swim teacher. When not in or writing about water, her research and advocacy on responsible business have taken her to China, India, No.10 and the UN.
Her swims include: a 4 woman English Channel relay; 2 woman Lake Zurich relay; the Solent; the Thames Marathon; Dart 10k, and competing in the International Winter Swimming Championships in China. She is equally happy swimming with seals and jumping in waterfalls in the Isle of Skye, or eating cake with her swimming buddies at Tooting Lido and the Serpentine.
