Throughout history, people have seen it as a challenge to cross the 63km of English Channel – to set records and make the news for the most unusual way of doing it.

This video will astound you: brave (and some just plain crazy) adventurers have done it by sea scooter, amphi-car, BATHTUB and even a chair tied to 54 helium balloons!

And if you don’t know what a coracle or a jet-pack is, then that’s even more reason to check out this video. You won’t be sorry you took a couple of minutes of your time to watch!
