Hope he logs the boat's co-ordinates while he sleeps and doesn't allow drift like our friend who tried to swim to Brazil 6 miles at a time...


The comedy is getting a bit wooden around here.


If he drifts too much, he might get beeched.


Is this what counts as current affairs these days?

OMG they're all at it now:

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/06/06/trans-pacific-swimmer-benoit-lecomte-monotony-will-biggest-test/

Mind you, I'm confused, it says he swam the Atlantic... I thought our famous 'swim the Atlantic but actually sunbathing on a beach in Brazil' hero from before claimed he was to be the first?

I 'swam the Atlantic' once. I was on holiday on the west coast of France and spent a pleasant afternoon at the beach.

Iíve decided to sword fight across the Himalayas, should be easy as I saw Highlander about twenty odd years ago.

The difficult bit will be the monotony and mental attitude, not they actual hard work and near impossible brutality of the environment. No, Iím sure the hardest bit will be maintaining a good mental attitude.
