Summary

In 2005-06, Julie Angus rowed nearly 10,000 kilometres across the Atlantic Ocean, becoming the first woman in the world to voyage across it from mainland to mainland in a rowboat. She was accompanied by her now husband, Colin Angus, as part of his epic expedition to circumnavigate the world by human power. For their remarkable journey, the couple won the Adventurer of the Year Award from National Geographic Adventure. A gripping adventure story, Rowboat in a Hurricane is also an extraordinary record of one of the world's most endangered ecosystems. Book jacket.
