Aquarium of the Bay/The Bay Institute Event Featuring Ocean Rower Roz Savage

Bay, Coast, and Ocean Community,

I’m pleased to announce our next exciting event featuring Roz Savage, Ocean Rower.  Roz is here from London to talk about her many adventures and environmental campaigns.  She has rowed across the Pacific, Atlantic and Indian oceans in every conceivable ocean condition.  I have read her books about crossing the Pacific and the Atlantic oceans; both are fantastic.  She will be selling and signing books at this event.

Register now for this great show. $10 includes 1 drink and light fare at the opening reception.

I hope to see you there.

Roz Savage, Ocean Rower

“Stop Drifting, Start Rowing:
One Woman’s Search for
Happiness and Meaning Alone On the Pacific”

Roz Savage, world-record-setting Ocean Rower and environmental campaigner, will talk about her adventures rowing solo across the world’s oceans-particularly her bid to become the first woman to row solo 8,000 miles across the Pacific. After a failed attempt in 2007, when her boat capsized 3 times in 24 hours during a storm, she set out again the following year from the Golden Gate Bridge. To a backdrop of photographs, maps and videos, she will tell the story of her epic crossing, and share her insights on happiness, meaning, and the environmental challenges that face our oceans in the 21st century.
