We had been fortunate to get away in time and, according to pilot charts and hurricane records, our chances of encountering a major storm would be very low. Considering that our current conditions were called good weather, I was shocked by the turbulence and size of the waves. The towering waves, crashing foam, and violent motion of the boat were what I would have expected of a storm—not a sunny, breezy day off the coast of Lisbon. It made me realize just how much I had to learn about the sea. Clearly, canoeing trips with friends in Canada had done nothing to prepare me for the reality of rowing in the open ocean.
They’re British-made and top of the line. ” “It was built by professionals,” I said. ” “No problem, we can do it,” Colin said. GETTING AN OCEAN rowboat ready for a crossing is a challenging affair. From the research I had done in Vancouver, I learned that preparing for an ocean row usually takes two years and a quarter of a million dollars. And that is for voyages half as long as ours. We had two weeks and dwindling credit limits. Colin and I left our cheap hotel and moved into a vacant shop at the marina, where the manager kindly allowed us to stay for free.
No, my answer is more convoluted, as many things in life are. I am not an adventurer or an athlete, and I am most certainly not a rowing protégée (my first time in a rowboat was only a year earlier). In fact, for most of my life I considered the outdoors a place where unknown dangers lurked, a place best avoided. I grew up a “base brat,” an only child with an air-force father and homemaker mother. We moved every four years or less and lived mostly on military bases in rented PMQs (private military quarters).
