CHANNEL SWIMMING CHALLENGE LOGBOOKS


THE CHANNEL SWIMMING CHALLENGE IS AN OPEN CHALLENGE THAT ANY ONE AROUND THE WORLD CAN TAKE PART IN. THE GOAL IS TO SWIM THE DISTANCE ACROSS THE ENGLISH CHANNEL. THE CHANNEL SWIMMING CHALLENGE HALL OF FAME DISPLAYS THE NAMES OF EVERYBODY WHO HAS ALREADY COMPLETED THE CHALLENGE.

THE ENGLISH CHANNEL IS THE STRETCH OF SEAWATER THAT SEPARATES ENGLAND FROM FRANCE. AT ITS NARROWEST, IT IS 34 KILOMETRES (21 MILES) WIDE. THAT IS 34,000 METRES OR 1360 LENGTHS OF A REGULAR (25 METRE) SWIMMING POOL.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO SWIM IT ALL IN ONE GO AND YOU DON'T EVEN NEED TO GO ANYWHERE NEAR THE SEA! ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS COUNT HOW MANY LENGTHS YOU SWIM EACH TIME YOU GO TO YOUR LOCAL SWIMMING POOL AND THEN ADD THE DISTANCES TOGETHER TO WORK TOWARDS YOUR GOAL.

THE CHANNEL SWIMMING CHALLENGE LOGBOOK HAS BEEN PUBLISHED TO COINCIDE WITH THE LAUNCH OF BATH TIME – AN INTERACTIVE WEB-BASED ART WORK BY ELLIE HARRISON. IT FEATURES EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW TO GET STARTED WITH YOUR CHALLENGE. IT CONTAINS INTERESTING FACTS AND HISTORY ABOUT CHANNEL SWIMMING AND OF COURSE HAS PLENTY OF ROOM FOR YOU TO LOG ALL OF YOUR SWIMS.
