Rowing it Alone , Deborah Veal

£2.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

On 7 October 2001, husband-and-wife team Debra and Andrew Veal set off from Tenerife in a rowing boat called Troika Transatlantic. They were the only mixed pair taking part in the Ward Evans Transatlantic Rowing Challenge. After only two weeks, Andrew, a 6" 5" experienced rower, abandoned ship having realised that he was terrified in the open seas. He left Debra, who was enjoying herself immensely, thinking that she would continue for a little while and then join him on the shore. She did, but not until she had rowed the Atlantic single-handed! This is Debra's account of over three months alone at sea - the gruelling work, loneliness, tranquility, beauty of nature, and support from hundreds of well wishers. Debra also shares her reflections and the insights into her relationship with her husband, as well as describing how she discovered unknown strengths and aspects of her self. A fascinating account of an inner and outer journey.
