The Swim

Through Storms and Nausea We Learn More

Date: June 24, 2018
Approximate GPS Location: (36.06°N, 143.22°)

Lecomte has been making slow progress due to storms, nausea, sea-sickness and battery problems with the electric engine of the RHIB, the rigid inflatable boat that tracks and assists him.

The winds have been coming from the northeast and creating current and swells such that after one 8-hour day he had only progressed 5 miles. His speed lately has been 1 mile per hour whereas a typical speed for him should be 2-3 miles per hour.

Lecomte and all boats are back at sea afer escaping a storm on Day 3. Very soon, Lecomte will enter into the Kuroshio Current which will send him into the much more rapid North Pacific Current, accelerating his progress. Until then it's all slow going.
