Africa to the Americas
The CWF Africa to the Americas Expedition left Dakar, Senegal on January 23rd 2013 to row unassisted across the Atlantic Ocean on a daring 3,569 nautical mile journey to Miami, USA. Using human power to propel the boat, and solar and wind power to charge its instruments, the crew conducted research on the ocean and themselves, sharing it in real-time to viewers world wide. The crew of four men (2 Americans + 2 Canadians) rowed the open ocean self-supported, 24 hours per day in 1-, 2- and 4-hour shifts. Along the way, OAR Northwest Education delivered FREE STEM-based curriculum to classrooms worldwide, collected a robust dataset about the ocean and themselves for future research on the state of ocean health, and inspired kids to pursue their own adventures to share.
