Looking for something new Sarah entered her first open water event ‘The Great North Swim’ 1 mile in Lake Windermere in 2010, which became a regular for the next few years.
In 2016 Sarah moved to the Scottish Highlands, joining the Cairngorm Wild Swimmers group, soon becoming a regular member of the groups Sunday swims.
