After 154 days, Benoît Lecomte has already covered 1,524 nautical miles (2,822 km) in The Swim.

Lecomte’s goal is a transoceanic assisted stage swim of 8,721 km across the Pacific Ocean from Japan to California. With 32.3% of the distance covered in a little more than 5 months, he still has a very long way to go: 5,899 km to his unprecedented goal to San Francisco.

At this current pace, he may have up to 322 more days out in the Pacific Ocean.
