Coast to coast from America to Cornwall.
Ben Fogle reveals his latest challenge; swimming the Atlantic.
The TV adventurer is aiming to do it in 100 days, spending up to 12 hours a day in the water.
Pirate FM caught up with him carrying the Olympic Torch at Eden: "A massive new challenge, probably the biggest one I've ever done in my life.
"I love Cornwall and the Eden Project is just magnificent. I love what Tim and the team have done here, creating something out of nothing, and I think there are many metaphors for life.
"It's about shining a light on hidden parts of the country that wouldn't normally have a spotlight on them and to see Ben Ainslie at Land's End this morning, I felt very, very proud".
