Roz Savage Completes Pacific Row

Roz Savage Complete Pacific Row

By David Rutter

Roz Savage became the first woman to row solo across the Pacific on the 4th of June when she rowed into the harbour at Madang, Papua New Guinea.

She completed the journey in three stages, with the third and final stage from Tarawa to Papua New Guinea taking 48 days.

Roz was met by a crowd of 5000 in Madang, and has been enjoying their hospitality since arrival.

Far from sitting back and resting after her journey, she is already planning a journey across the Indian Ocean, which is due to start in March 2011.

About David Rutter

Dave grew up on a small acreage on the outskirts of Sydney, within a stone's throw of the bush. Having spent a large part of his childhood exploring the bush behind the family home, much of his adult life has been spent exploring the world - he has lived in Sweden, traveled much of Europe, travelled in the Pacific and South America, and more recently in Asia. The Australian bush is however, the place where he feels he truly belongs.
