The Chatter Challenge

This week's podcast guest is Jacqui.


Based up in the North East, not far from me, Jacqui only took up wild swimming in 2020, but loved it so much, and was so determined to swim trough winter, she set up The Chatter Challenge to help swimmers, new and old, to stay motivated and keep going.

The Chatter Challenge looks likely to become a regular feature amongst existing winter swimming challenges.

I hope you enjoy listening to her.

  1. Well done my Jacqui. I don’t tell you this often but I am extremely proud of your wild mad swimming . What I have noticed about you since starting this is how much happier you are.
