“[Rowing the Atlantic] is a reminder that living deliberately is a choice. We don't need to cross oceans to reach new destinations, but we have to be willing to cast off.”
–San Francisco Chronicle
“A great armchair adventure.”
About the Author
A latecomer to the life of adventure, Roz Savage was previously a management consultant and investment banker, before realizing at the age of thirty-four that there might be more to life than a steady income and a house in the suburbs. In 2005, she was the only solo female competitor in the Atlantic Rowing Race, the first solo woman ever to compete in that race and the sixth woman to row an ocean solo. In 2010, Roz was selected as an "Adventurer of the Year" by National Geographic.

She has since rowed across the Pacific, and just yesterday began her third Ocean, leaving Australia to row across the Indian Ocean.
The book is her life "stripped" naked - literally - emotionally torn and tattered, she sets about a life threatening adventure to find herself.
A brilliant read - I eagerly await the book of her Pacific row.
Her book not only reveals the monumental physical struggle Roz had with nature , it reveals something about the "inner Roz" and her thoughts regarding the, present, the future and the environment.
Her path to facing such an adventure is fascinating. Her tenacity, bravery and resilience in the face of huge adversity is remarkable.
I enjoyed the style of writing and would highly recommend her first book.
Rowing the Atlantic
This was a very readable and well written account of Roz Savage's journey both across the Atlantic and to find her purpose in life and achieve personal growth and happiness along the way. The trials and terrors during the crossing are interspersed with her own personal feelings as she copes with all that the Atlantic throws at her and arrives battered but triumphant and happy in Antigua over 100 days later. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and plan to read her others.

I bought this because I knew the author years ago and thought it would bring back memories. Unfortunately she remembers things so very differently that there is no common ground. Read morePublished 24 months ago by Amazon Customer
