Japan to San Francisco… to your wall !

 

 

Three months before the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, I will depart from Choshi, Japan on a mission to row 5,500 nautical miles solo across the North Pacific Ocean to the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco. 18 attempts have been made to row this distance. Two were successful. Both were men.

 

My goal:

  • 1st woman &
  • 1st person to row land-to-land (the men were towed the last 20 and 50 miles respectively).

To be safe, I need a boat of comparable weight (to the boats used by the two men) and a boat strong enough to survive the strength of today’s typhoons. My new boat has been designed by naval architect Jim Antrim.

Now I am fundraising for the build… slice by slice!

 

‘Slice of History’

After the row, my boat will be sliced into 3” ring frames and exhibited as an art installation at a major gallery. The 60 slices will be hung in order – like the skeleton of the blue whale in the NY American History Museum.

These ring frames – I calls slices – will go on to decorate 60 walls of offices and homes worldwide, telling a story to generations to come, of dogged, unwavering perseverance.

 

Only 60 Slices!

Slices will be sold on a ‘first come, first slice’ basis and are expected to sell fast. This is a unique opportunity to own a Slice of History!

Slices:

  • $5,000 for corporations
  • $3,500 for individuals
