noun - The United Kingdom Hydrographic Office's Admiralty Chart 2198 North Channel Southern Part (or admiralty chart-2109) is a marine chart published by the UK Hydrographic Office and used by the Irish Long Distance Swimming Association to recognise North Channel Swims.

A North Channel crossing or the North Channel Swim is a solo or relay open water swim of a distance of 34.5 km (21.4 miles). It is known for fickle weather, rough seas, tough currents and an abundance of jellyfish. It is also sometimes referred to as the Irish Channel. A North Channel Swim is a swim across one of the channels in the Oceans Seven. Its swims, often done in 10.5-14°C (50-54ºF) water, are sanctioned and certified by the Irish Long Distance Swimming Association.
