We already presented the project: here
To resume : An adventure, a project, Ocean, 5800km, a boat, 80 days of rowing, 2Zells ... a dream!
The dream came true on April 19 when the 2Zell (Laurence De Rancourt and Laurence Grand-Clement) took the start of their crossing from Australia Gerardtown.
Congratulations to the rowers and their team for this great lesson of courage. Good luck!

On 14 April, the 2zell (Laurence De Rancourt and Laurence Grand-Clement) will start the crossing of the Indian Ocean (3.100 miles) from Geraldton (Autralia) to Mauritius. Only one rule: cross rowing without assistance.
They will live and row in the middle of the ocean for more than 80 days on a boat that is less than 7m50. This adventure represents 3 kind of challenge : a physical challenge, a technical challenge and a mental challenge.
As a partner, Mercator Ocean will provide weekly the surface currents on the crossing area. These data, in addition to weather forecasts, will help them choose the right trajectories.
