Katie Maggs ready to swim in the sea

An all-year-round, open-water sea swimmer and swim champ ambassador for the Outdoor Swimming Society, Katie documents her journey through her outdoor swimming photography and popular publications in online and in print UK magazines.

In her award winning short film - Tonic of the Sea - nominated for the BAFTA short films award, Katie tells her story of how swimming all year round off the Cornish coast has helped her to overcome stress related burnout and anxiety. The film is now being used in clinical practice and has been shown at health and wellbeing events around the world. Meet Katie at the South West Outdoor Festival, and join her for a swim over the weekend.
