Roz Savage Pacific Rowing Update


Roz Savage is attempting to become the first woman to row solo across the Pacific. Back in May we reported on Roz's excellent Google Maps mashup that is tracking her progress. Now 93 days, 2,679 miles and 1 million oar strokes later it seems like a good time for an update.

As well as rowing for around 16 hours a day Roz is keeping up a steady stream of Twitter and blog updates, all of which are accessible from map markers on the map. The map also shows the track of Roz's journey so far.

Roz's is now entering the final 500 nautical miles before she reaches her goal of Tuvalu. So at her present speed of about 29 miles a day she has at least another 19 days to go. It makes me exhausted just thinking about it. I think I'm going to have a lie down now.

Roz Savage lands on terra firma

Roz is sooo inspirational. After 105 days paddling west from Hawaii, Roz has now landed on Tarawa.
