The Association appreciates that some swimmers may wish to make their attempts outside of the Rules and Conditions of the Channel Swimming Association and we regret that we are unable to verify these swims and are unable to include them in our lists of successful swims. Consequently swims conducted outside of CSA control do not qualify for this award.
