THE ART OF SWIMMING

BY CAPTAIN WEB

At four minutes past one o'clock on the morning of August 24th, 1875, Captain Web, well smothered in porpoise grease, dived into the sea from the end of Admiralty Pier, Dover. So started the first successful swimming of the English Channel. This account of that epic swim, together with chapters on his life, How to Swim and other facts of the period, make this a fascinating read.
