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 go girl.
