In 1998, Ben Lecomte swam across the Atlantic Ocean.  Now he’s taking on the Pacific.

The long-distance swimmer began June 5, in Tokyo, and hopes to reach San Francisco in about six months. That’s a distance of approximately 5,500 miles. The goal, says Lecomte, is to conduct research and raise awareness about climate change and ocean pollution.

Two Ships Pass
Popping Rocks (WHOI Blog)
By Adam Soule

Traveling to beautiful ports-of-call is one of the benefits of conducting scientific research in the deep sea. The port of call for the Popping Rocks 2 cruise was St. George’s, Bermuda, an idyllic tropical oceanside town, but there was a sight waiting for us that made it feel more like home. In addition to the brightly-colored homes and businesses, we found the familiar shape of the Corwith Cramer, a two-masted schooner that about 20 college undergraduates call home for a semester-long experience learning about sailing and oceanography, tied to the same wharf as R/V Atlantis.
