ROWING ACROSS THE ATLANTIC OCEAN
Tuesday June 13, 2017
6:00 PM until 7:00 PM
George Pagano and his teammate Caitlin Miller rowed across the Atlantic Ocean in the 2015 Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge. They left from La Gomera in the Canary Islands and travelled 3000 miles to Antigua in the Caribbean. They were a self-sustaining boat and received no assistance in their crossing, which took 2 months. They left the Canaries in December 2015 and arrived in Antigua in February of 2016. They set the World Records for fastest and youngest mixed pair to row across the Atlantic. In this presentation, George will show two videos, one at the beginning of the presentation and one at the end. They will give the audience a good idea of his ocean rowing journey and highlight key events (the hurricane, the sea life, rowing at night). There will be time for questions at the end.
Join us in Garling Hall for this exciting evening! This is a Civic and Social Literacy Program of the PA Forward Initiative. Library programs are generously funded by the Friends of the Ridley Township Library.
