I Love the Thames Log Book, £12.50 plus P&P

It's not just Walliam's that can complete the Thames. This river is a swimmers superhighway: if you start at the source, there are over 150 swimmable miles left to go.

In this unique guide for river swimming, Michael Worthington, one of the founding fathers of the OSS, gives you all you need to swim the length of the Thames 'as a 'collect all the stickers kind of project, rather than some Herculean task to be completed all at once'. 

Read the review in the Financial Times. £12.50 plus £2.5 P&P.

Worthington identifies the entry and exit points in a book of preparatory notes that divide the river into 75 manageable sections - with  with plenty of opportunities for a good lunch along the way.

It is set out as a log-book so you can record when and with whom you did each swim.

 "The nice thing about river swimming is that you can swim a really long way without ever losing the security of the bank," says Worthington. "If you swim across a lake, there's always a point where you are a long way from land in both directions - but in a river, you are never far from the edge. There's also a strong sense of going somewhere, of travelling from A to B."
