The lists on this page are of the successful solo & relay English Channel swims to date. To the best of our knowledge the lists are of all the recognised Channel swims to date. They are sorted into solo & relays by name & solo & relays by date. Our database can sort other variations on the lists should you require something special. Please e-mail to michael.oram@btinternet.comand we will try to answer your requests.

Where are you now?
We are starting a Swimming Scrapbook and trying to fill the gaps in the database records If you have swum the Channel or know someone who has, successful or unsuccessful, let us know all about it and help us update the gaps in our records.

The lists are long and require time to download - please allow extra time depending on the speed of your modem and computer.

If you need further information ask us - we might be able to help from our office databases.
