Africa to the Americas, December 2012
The Africa to the Americas 2012 expedition will span 60-80 days and an ocean’s breadth between Liberia and Venezuela. Departing from Monrovia in early December 2012, the crew of four men will row the open ocean self-supported, 24 hours per day, and in two-hour shifts. This nearly 4000nm Atlantic-crossing and Guinness World Records attempt leaves no room for mistakes and much less for sleeping quarters on their 29-foot rowboat. This ocean-crossing demands that the rowing team demonstrate expertise in meteorology, navigation, nutrition, oceanography, technology, shipboard and oceanic emergencies, expedition planning, sport medicine, interpersonal communication, leadership and, of course, perseverance. With a goal of connecting children from communities separated by a vast ocean and cultures, the expedition team is rowing in support of Right To Play – an international nongovernmental organization whose philosophy is to impart skills of responsibility and self-reliance that leave a lasting impact for children.
