across the ocean in a pink rowing boat
This book tells the story of four women who together, embark on the greatest adventure of their lives: crossing the Atlantic in a rowing boat. At the beginning of 2019 they register for the Talisker Whiskey Challenge; the toughest rowing race in the world. None of the four would have any idea what would come their way or how intensive the following two years would be.

At a time when the world is suffering from the restrictions of the corona virus, four rowing women are opting for the freedom of life on the ocean. But what is freedom when you are stuck together in primitive conditions? Writer Astrid Janse provides the reader with a revealing insight into the sense, nonsense and beauty of a unique adventure. It is an honest and sincere account of happiness, stress, irritation, sadness disappointment, hope, faith and love. In other words, more than a blueprint of life itself, a must read.
