Rowing Across the Pacific Alone

Roz Savage, 39, who rowed alone across the Atlantic Ocean last year, is now trying to do the same thing across the Pacific:

Her vessel is a souped-up 24-foot long rowboat named the Brocade after her corporate sponsor, San Jose-based Brocade Communications Systems Inc. [...]

She won't be followed by a rescue boat, but will carry a satellite phone, update her blog through a PC with satellite Internet access and will be monitored online by Brocade employees and environmentalists through global positioning tracking technology.

Her rowboat is equipped with a tiny watertight cabin for sleeping, a bedpan and industrial quantities of health food bars, nuts and freeze-dried meals. | Roz's website - Thanks David R!

Well... she'll be following dutchman Ralph Tuijn, who is halfway his solo-rowing-trip across the (widest part of the) pacific. (
