Our lists are different to other available lists - our lists are researched from contemporary records and archives and are not based on other existing lists
From these lists we generate the numerical order of successful swimmers and successful swims, which are further divided into successful swims by direction (England-France, France-England)
For instance on 7th August 1965 Keith Hancox became the 120th individual to swim the Channel, it was the 169th successful swim and the 137th successful swim France to England
We only publish those results we have confirmed; currently we are up to 1945 for all attempts (successes and failures) and to 1985 for all successes.
The lists will be updated as research progresses
