Ocean Quotes 10: Alain Bombard, Biologist

Alain Bombard  was a French biologist, physician and politician famous for sailing across the Atlantic Ocean in a dinghy without food or water to prove that he could live on nothing more than fish, plankton, rain water and small amounts of sea water. He landed at Barbados 62 days later.

“I had fought on behalf of man against the sea, but I realized that it had become more urgent to fight on behalf of the sea against men.”
