Smelling The Sea Air and Tasting The Salt Water

Lewis Pugh, world-renowned environmentalist, explorer and open water swimmer will give a speech tonight in New York City at the Explorers Club on the Upper East Side at 6:30 pm.

A motivational showreel of Lewis can be seen here. Enjoy.

When describing how he visualizes his swims, Lewis says, "...I can smell the sea air...I can taste the salt water..." He also motivates by reminding us, " matter how ordinary we may appear to be, we are all capable of extraordinary acts."

The Explorers Club is a New York City-based international multidisciplinary professional society dedicated to the advancement of field research and the ideal that it is vital to preserve the instinct to explore. Since its inception in 1904, the Club has served as a meeting point and unifying force for explorers and scientists worldwide.
