Paul is the nephew of long distance swimmer Ben Lecomte. Paul will discuss Ben’s journey as he prepares for an epic swim from Tokyo to San Francisco, and the first citizen-science expedition of its kind. He will attempt to swim the 5500 miles across the Pacific Ocean – for eight hours a day for six months – accompanied by a support sailboat and his six crew members. The Longest Swim headquarters is at Altasea, base camp for the next months as the team is preparing the support boat Discoverer for the expedition.
