Ben Lecomte will attempt a solo stage swim between Tokyo, Japan and San Francisco, California. He expects to start his transoceanic swim sometime in April 2017 and take at least 6 months of daily swims to work his way across the Pacific Ocean.

The Longest Swim can be followed here. His escort boat is now off the coast of Portugal on its way to Japan.
