Channel Swimming & Piloting Federation "Nothing great is easy", Captain Matthew Webb


Channel Swimming is a worldwide community, and one of the most giving and open group of people you will ever meet. This section is for Channel swimmers to connect with each other and share their swimming experiences with the world. 

Swimmers' stories are both a tribute to the incredible hard work that an individual or a team puts in to get across and also a great inspirational showcase to those thinking of having an attempt. The ones we have on this website will give you a good idea of Channel swimmers' different backgrounds and experiences during their swim. 

Submit your swim story 

We are always looking for swimmers willing to share their Channel swim stories and photos. 

If you are interested and would like to share your story please do so by contacting Nick Adams. Please read our guidelines and house rules.
