Little Ship of Fools
16 Rowers, 1 Improbable Boat, 7 Tumultuous Weeks on the AtlanticBook - 2013
The dramatic and hilarious story of sores and survival on a human-powered journey across the ocean. It was to be an expedition like no other-a run across the Atlantic from Morocco to Barbados aboard an experimental rowboat. There would be no support vessel, no stored water, no sails, no motor. The boat's crew of sixteen included several veterans of U.S. college rowing, a number of triathletes, a woman who had rowed both the Atlantic and Indian Oceans, and a scrawny, bespectacled sexagenarian -- our chronicler, Charles Wilkins.
