The Longest Swim
Ben Lecomte and the Longest Swim Team on board Discoverer have endured a pretty tough time out in the Pacific this past year.
Ben eventually swam nearly 2000 miles, until the autumnal North Pacific became rather too bumpy! He had close encountered with a lot of marine life including several sharks, turtles and other large fish. The team also collected a large amount of plastic along the way, which shows the truly global nature of this massive problem.
In the late autumn, the team finally made the inevitable decision to head south to Hawaii for the winter.
What comes now is difficult to say, but we wish the team all the best in the future, and look forward to supporting them in the next mind-blowing project!
