Roz Savage Complete Indian Ocean Row

By David Rutter

Roz Savage has become the first woman to row across the “Big Three” oceans – the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian.

On the 4th of October she made landfall in Grand Baie, Mauritius, to complete a five month row across the Indian Ocean after setting out from Fremantle, Australia on the 14th of April 2011.

After rowing 15,000 miles, taking over 5 million oar strokes, and spending over 500 days at sea, Roz has achieved her goal of not only crossing the oceans, but raising awareness of the world’s environmental issues.

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.
