For several months earlier this year we tracked the progress of Roz Savage and Sarah Outen as they both rowed solo across different oceans. Roz tackled the second leg of her trans-Pacific row while Sarah became the first woman to ever row solo across the Indian Ocean. Now, both women are back on dry land and preparing to share their experiences with upcoming speaking engagements. Ironically enough, both of them are speaking on the same evening, but the events are separated by, you guess it, an ocean.
Sarah will be the first to speak by virtue of the event taking place in the U.K. She’ll be at The North Wall in Oxford, where for the first time she’ll talk about her experiences out on the water. The event gets underway at 7:30 PM on October 19th, and is expected to last roughly two hours. All proceeds from the event will go to support Sarah’s charities, namely Arthritis Care and Arthritis Research Campaign. If you’re in the area and want to stop by, you can get tickets here.
Also on that Monday, October 19th, Roz will be in Washington D.C., where she’ll be giving a lecture at the National Geographic Live! center. Her chat begins at 7:30 PM as well, and tickets are available by clicking here. Roz will be discussing her row across the Atlantic from a few years back, while supporting her new book Row the Atlantic, which hits book stores tomorrow. To find out more about Roz’s appearance, click here. She’ll be appearing as part of a three-part Quest for Adventure series, which will also include others who prefer to propel themselves around the planet through the use of an oar.
Wish I could make either event. Anyone planning on going?
