On Monday, a team of four women arrived at Cairn, Australia, in a 29-foot boat, having rowed from San Francisco, a distance of about 8,500 miles.
I love sea stories, especially those about people in dire straits who survive against all odds, but this is no survival story. This is about a team of women who spent months preparing for the trip, and began it in top mental and physical condition. They didn’t suddenly find themselves in dire circumstances. Their story is about crossing the Pacific in a small boat on purpose, and having fun while doing it.
