Debra Searle amazed the world as the woman who rowed the Atlantic alone. Her husband, an experienced oarsman, left the boat just two weeks into the crossing after developing an uncontrollable fear of the ocean. Debra was not discouraged. After 111 days she rowed into Barbados’ port in her 23-foot plywood boat. Since then she has sailed around Antarctica, finished the longest canoe race in the world, set a new world record for crossing the channel and been awarded by the Queen of England for her achievements.
