SavageAntiguaNeed some inspiration? Roz Savage’s new book, Stop Drifting, Start Rowing, is due out on October 15th. Roz holds four world records, including First Woman to Solo Row Three Oceans: Atlantic, Pacific, Indian. She is a National Geographic Adventurer of the Year 2010 and a Yale World Fellow 2012.

Here’s how Roz describes the book: “Based on my Pacific crossing between 2008 and 2010, Stop Drifting, Start Rowing is a story about my quest to raise awareness of environmental issues, as well as a personal search for happiness and meaning.

Rowing for Children: For those of you who have been keeping track of Erden Eruç’s progress as he rowed—singlehanded—from the waters off California to those off Papua New Guinea, you can hear a first-person account of the adventure at the Corinthian Yacht Club in Tiburon on November 6. Click on the link to learn more, or to RSVP.

From Erdun: “There will be dinner beginning at 6 p.m. and I will begin my presentation at 7 p.m. about my row across the Pacific Ocean from California shores to the Papua New Guinea waters…  This singlehanded crossing by oars was especially meaningful for me since we raised about $47,000 for charity during that crossing to benefit the rural primary school children in regional boarding schools in Turkey.

I have scheduled an interview Roz Savage, who has rowed across the Atlantic Ocean and is leaving San Francisco in July to row—solo—across the Pacific, in a bid to be the first woman to do so. How does Roz do it? And why? How big is her “rowboat”? What does she take along to eat and drink? Why doesn’t Roz use a chase boat? And how in the world does she keep from going mad with boredom? Here’s a 15-minute interview.

The upcoming half-hour interview will be broadcast live on BlogTalkRadio on Saturday, July 7, at 9:30 a.m. Pacific time.

Expedition 360

June 20, 2007 | 1 Comment

Thanks to Kathy Barlow with Travel Insurance Services for sending information about her friend Jason Lewis’ Expedition 360, “an attempt at one of the last great firsts for true circumnavigation: reaching antipodal points on the surface of the globe using only human power (no motors or sails). Bicycles, in-line skates, kayaks, swimming, walking and a unique pedal powered boat are being used by Englishman Jason Lewis and an international team to travel over 40,000 miles across five continents, two oceans and one sea (1994 – 2007).”

Want to be inspired? Listen to this interview with Erden Eruc, who is leaving from San Francisco next week to row—singlehandedly—across the Pacific Ocean to Brisbane, Australia. “Born in Cyprus, and a Turkish citizen, Eruc is a longtime U.S. resident who has dreamed of a human powered, self-propelled journey around the world since 1997.”

Sounds crazy, right? Don’t jump to conclusions. Eruc has already:

  • Bicycled 5,546 miles roundtrip from Seattle to Alaska
  • Climbed 20,320-foot-high Mt. McKinley (Denali)
  • Bicycled 3,980 miles from Seattle to Miami
  • Rowed solo across the Atlantic Ocean between the Canary Islands and Guadeloupe
