A latecomer to the life of adventure, Roz Savage was previously a management consultant and investment banker, before realizing at the age of thirty-four that there might be more to life than a steady income and a house in the suburbs. In 2005, she was the only solo female competitor in the Atlantic Rowing Race, the first solo woman ever to compete in that race and the sixth woman to row an ocean solo. In 2010, Roz was selected as an "Adventurer of the Year" by National Geographic.
"[Rowing the Atlantic] is a reminder that living
deliberately is a choice. We don't need to cross oceans to reach
new destinations, but we have to be willing to cast off."
-San Francisco Chronicle
"A great armchair adventure."
