Rarely in life is there an opportunity to participate in a pioneering event, but the Indian Ocean Rowing Race offers just that, with almost every record to be established. This Ocean Rowing Race is not only be the first to cross the Indian Ocean, but is also the first ever ocean rowing race to be held in the Southern Hemisphere.
Departing from Geraldton, Western Australia on 19th April and finishing over 3,100 nautical miles distant in Mauritius, teams of Solos, Pairs and Fours, together with a record setting crew of Eight, will push their physical and mental capabilities to the absolute limit. It is anticipated the fastest teams could complete the crossing in less than 60 days, while some of the Pairs and Solo Class boats may well take over 100 days.
