Notes:
1. Kevin Murphy's 1975 English Channel three-way crossing attempt was notable because he was ordered out of the water because of bad weather after swimming non-stop for 52 hours 30 minutes when he was halfway back on his third leg. "I think my 52½ hours in the sea for that first three-way attempt was my best ever swim - which is odd really because it ended in failure. I do like to think it moved the goalposts and proved that a three-way could be done, but it took the likes of Jon Erikson, Philip Rush and Alison Streeter to do that."

2. Deaf swimmer Brenda Lussier-Neumueller's 2015 Lake Ontario 52 km crossing attempt was notable because she was stopped after 26 hours 16 minutes and a total swimming distance of 44.3 km, 5 km from her goal.

3. The reported distance of Veljko Rogošić's swim in the Adriatic Sea in 2006 was between 106.2 and 139.8 statute miles (171 km and 225 km). Information on the exact GPS coordinates of the starting and finishing positions are not known and were not reported by the Guinness Book of World Records.
