Row Row Row Your Boat

Rather you than me girl, well done.
Update: I must have been half asleep when I posted this, the trip was a good while ago but the story is, as it always was, about the affects of single handing over protracted periods.
The emotions the sea and its power can generate can often be all-consuming.

Ocean rower Debra Searle found this out while crossing 3,000 miles (4,830km) of the Atlantic between 2001 and 2002.

Aged 27 when she took the challenge, she landed in Barbados in January 2002 after setting off from Tenerife three-and-a-half months earlier in a 23ft (7m) long craft.

Debra, from Plymouth, was supposed to make the trip with her husband Andrew, until he developed a fear of the ocean after two weeks. She decided to carry on solo.more
