Roz Savage rows 4,000 miles across Indian Ocean
This is not the first ocean jaunt Roz has accomplished. In 2005 she rowed a small rowboat across the Atlantic Ocean. In 2008 – 2010 she rowed across the Pacific in three stages. Altogether, she’s spent over five hundred nights sleeping in her rowboat, Sedna.
Roz’ motivation for rowing the oceans comes down to the ocean itself. She’s passionate about showing the world that each one of us has a role in fostering environmental sustainability and creating our collective future. Just like her oar-strokes, many tiny actions add up to a big achievement.
This will be Roz’ last ocean journey; she’s made the decision to hang up her oars. After six years of being an “ocean rower” she’ll be changing her focus to land-based activities. Roz hopes to use her experiences to continue her message that we need to preserve the world’s oceans.
Roz travels in a small rowboat carrying everything she needs with her. Packed into watertight bins are all the food she’ll need until making landfall. A water desalinator makes fresh water to drink. She’s got a small cabin to sleep in and a satellite phone for communication.
Many voices around the globe are joining together today to congratulate Roz on a job well done!
