Roz Savage - Indian Ocean Victory

At approximately 0630hrs on the morning of 4th October, Roz Savage made landfall in Grand Baie, Mauritius after rowing 4,000 miles across the Indian Ocean from Fremantle in Western Australia.

Roz Savage has just spent the past 5 months living within the confines of her small purple rowboat named “Sedna” carrying everything she anticipated needing, including watertight food storage bins and a water desalinator to make fresh drinking water. She had a small cabin to sleep in and a satellite phone for communication.

Many voices around the globe are joining together today to congratulate Roz on a job well done!

    Hoo Roo 2u2, Magpie.
