Re: Transatlantic rowing
So there's more than one woman out there doing that!!? Excellent. Brilliant. Made my day! The dynamics of a trip like that are fraught with complication. There are logs online of these rowing passages. One I read was of one one oarsman having unbearably painful boils while the other had none, another was of a husband who couldn't hack it and was taken off leaving his wife to choose whether to go on alone. She did and made it. Another of two Italians who treated themselves to champagne and swimming and had a gay old time. Throwing in a boat design that seems unsuited closes in on asking for troubles.
“So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.”
