 Obs. suplimentare:
            1815 - un prizonier dupá bátália de la Waterlo, italianul Jan Marie Saletti evadeazá de pe docurile portului Dover şi ajunge înot pe ţármul francez, la Calais, cutezanţá care a fost mult aplaudatá de opinia publicá francezá....

            1873 - cpt. Matthew Webbs traverseazá pentru prima datá Canalul Mânecii, de la Dover la Calais în 21 h:45 min. (în 1883 îşi pierde viaţa încercând sá strábatá apele cascadei Niagara, într-un butoi...).  
         1961 Argentinian Antonio Abertondo started the first successful non-stop swim across the Channel and back, completed in 43 hr 5 min.

-       Traversarea Canalului manecii ['la Manche’] a interesat multe personalitati: americanca de origine maghiara Ederle, inotatori de faima [Mark Spitz] si antrenori renumiti [Doc Counsilman] si multi altii {fost mea eleva, din Turcia, Nesrin Olgun care are bretul de traversare, atestat de Asociatia Chanel Cros-Swimm}
