We’ve just gotten word from Sean Svendsen, from the Boat Yard at Grand Marina, that an Aussie rower is planning to row from San Francisco to Australia. The rower, whose name we don’t yet know, expects to depart this coming Sunday, and be at sea for at least 200 days.
At this stage that’s all we know. We called the phone number provided but at this stage haven’t heard back.
We know Aussies are sometimes crazy, but 200+ days in a rowboat? Perhaps the lack of airline seats caused him to find an alternative means of transport.
Stay tuned, as we aim to bring you more details next week.
