That's what Emmanuel Coindre is planning to do. In June he will attempt the first solo nonstop rowboat voyage from Japan to the U.S. There are no port calls planned as the boat will carry all the food needed and has a desalination machine.
The 32 year-old French sailor plans to row 9,000 km (5592.34 miles) from Choshi at the eastern tip of Chiba Prefecture to San Francisco in 100 days. He expects to be rowing 16 to 18 hours a day.
His boat the, Jaeger-LeCoultre, is 6.5 meters long and 1.5 meters wide and weighs 650 kg (1,433 lbs). This trip will be twice as long as the Atlantic crossings that Coindre has previously done.
