“If astronauts go to the moon and you’re going across an ocean… doesn’t that make you an aquanaut?”- curious 6 year old

ABOUT LIA

A licensed captain, I have sailed the equivalent of 8 laps of the globe; crossed an ocean 3 times alone and am the 53rd woman to row the Atlantic.

Now 37, I have spent 73 days in a row naked, eaten over 2 years worth of freeze-dried food and sailed a boat over 40mph!
