1000 Leagues Across the Sea
I put together a project to try become the first American Pairs Boat to ever row across the North Atlantic Ocean in June of 2016. This project aimed to beat the 119 year old 55 day crossing record initially set by George Harboe and Frank Samuelson in 1896. We were also trying to become the first ever American Pairs Boat to row this route. In addition to leading the overall project, I built the website and created the 'Nautilus Tracker' mobile application for tracking our progress across the sea.
Our expedition only lasted three days as our boat began to take on water during a storm our second night at sea.
