Rowing Across the Atlantic

Here is a picture of the guy and his boat that has crossed the atlantic a couple times..taken at Stage Harbor entrance in Chatham, Mass. Going out one morning we past him coming in from a exercise run...quite a row boat. The speed was incredible ..he was really moving....

yes, that is amazing. The boat looks really cool also. I think where the glass skylight thing is, there is a room, to sleep in and be out of the storms.

more than you wanted to know

see oceanrowing.com for details about these "adventures", you can even find a boat to buy that is designed for this stuff on the site.

I did follow Tori Murden's attempt to cross a couple years ago through this site and was impressed. A hurricane finally went over her as she approached Europe and her rowboat became the basket in the washing machine; she got pitchpoled etc. At least she survived and went on to success on a later attempt. [And despite being injured, she did wait until the storm died out before triggering her EPIRB (?) to avoid risking other lives. It one thing to put your life at risk deliberately, another to ask others to put theirs at risk to save you.]
