50 Year Old Set to Swim From Japan to San Francisco in 180 Days

Man Hoping To Swim Across The Pacific

Ben Lecomte is planning to spend the next six months swimming 5,500 miles across the Pacific Ocean. The 50 year-old will jump into the water in Chosi, Japan on Sunday before swimming through a giant trash heap, a great white shark migration, tons of jellyfish and storms. Ben hopes to paddle and kick to San Francisco by November. In 1998, he crossed the Atlantic.
