SEE AUDIO SLIDE SHOW: A 7,200 mile odyssey

Original post made on Jul 25, 2007

Quite the contrary. Caption: Roz Savage rows her boat the Brocade in the San Francisco Bay during a press launch on July 10. She is bidding to become the first woman in history to row across the Pacific Ocean solo. Almanac photo by Veronica Weber.

Roz you are a brillant lady who lights up my own consciousness about the state of the oceans... it has been a delight to have you zipping up and down my driveway at all times of the day as you train and prepare for your voyage. So glad we are friends...you go girl.
