Swimming the Chanel - Dover to Calais.

  wee eddie 13:39 17 Mar 2019

We are frequently told of valiant swims by plucky Brits, other nationalities are available, swimming from Dover to Calais.

However, I don't think that I have heard of a French person swimming from Calais to Dover.

I wonder why?

wee eddie I wonder why?

Probably because the French have more sense than we do. Personally I never did see any sense in such things. What on earth does it prove? only that some people are good strong swimmers nothing else.

There might be a tide and prevailing wind advantage.

There have been fifteen swimmers who swam from France to England. They were a mixture of nationalities, but none of them were French
