There when the OSS began, Michael is the king of good ideas, a good time and coming at things from a direction no one else does - the hot tub and the social swim series were some of his early ideas, a guidebook to swimming the Thames in his middling period (he wrote it in a few slow days in the office, and in the following summers groups of swimmers charted it's length on a weekend by weekend basis).

Michael's ideas have launched much of the movement - social swims and wild swim facebook groups are part of the landscape for wild swimmers now, and began when the 'OSS Swim Responsibility Statement' and the social swim series.

As happy skippering a boat and dealing with tidal flow charts as stoking the hot tub under a full moon, Michael is a natural maverick who's renegade spirit ensures that the OSS stays true to it's roots: free wild swimming. He has an exciting campaign for 2016: watch this space....
