Roz Savage rows solo across many oceans – the Atlantic and the Pacific to name a few.
She has rowed over 8,000 miles and taken over three million oar strokes
and spent more than 312 days alone on a 23 foot rowboat.
Roz has a love hate relationship with the ocean and has had many “ocean adventures” and takes her lessons she has learnt on the sea and hopes to apply them to the environmental challenges she and others face today.
She sees herself as an adventurer
and only now she can say that because before she took to the oars she worked in London for 11 years in an office as a management consultant. Tired of working in the ‘rat race’
she re-assessed her life and decided where she wanted to be in 10 years. Doing something completely different.
To get “out of her comfort zone” she first rowed 3000 miles across the Atlantic from the Canary Islands to Antigua in the ‘Atlantic Rowing Race’. This was the hardest thing she had ever done. But after climbing out onto dry line from solitary confinement
, she said she was “euphoric
