2nd try

2006 - 2009

The biggest lesson I learned during Goree Challenge I, was get someone else to build your boat. Sponsorship was still non-existing, but I was able to later scrape up the fees for the boat construction, albeit alittle late. However, in-kind support remained at the same level.

This would be my longest row so far, two weeks. I was having problems with my water maker, so the decision to abort the mission was made. I was near Guinea-Bissau.


US Embassy in Dakar, France Navy and Spanish Fishing vessel called the Montecarlo was part of the rescue operation. After the rescue, the Montecarlo transported me back to Dakar, Senegal.
