Woman Hopes To Be The First To Row Solo Across Pacific

 

Sonya Baumstein plans to become the first woman to row solo across the Pacific Ocean. Only three other boats have made the solo crossing, and all were rowed by men. Sonya left the Japanese port of Choshi yesterday (June 7), taking the first strokes of a 6,000 mile journey to California. Baumstein expects to arrive in San Francisco some time in September.
