Ben Lecomte Pacific Ocean swim
It will be very interesting to see how Ben and Steve/WOWSA and Guinness define the "goal posts" for this event.
Thankfully he is upfront about using wetsuit / flippers / hood / paddles / snorkle / gloves / booties / etc.
The more intriguing question is whether he will allow himself extended dry trips on the boat, with the prevailing currents, without returning to the position of the previous exit from the water.
Is this a swim across the Pacific? Or a boat trip with occasional swimming?
