Ocean Rowing & Roc Expedition
Fact: Fewer people have rowed an ocean than HAVE CLIMBED EVEREST
The first ocean rowers were Norwegian born American emigrants, Frank Samuelsen and George Harbo, who rowed an open woodenboat from New York to France in 1896. Since their successful crossing, Ocean rowing has grown in popularity and has been noted as “the New Everest”. To date, nearly 300 people have rowed an ocean with the majority of these voyages on the Atlantic, with traditional monohull ocean rowing boats.
until 2009, when Roc Expedition, sets the new standarts with their revolutionary multihull designs and builds Fastest Ocean rowing Trimaran in The World - "Triton" (Hallin marine), and First ever Ocean rowing catamaran - "Big Blue", only ocean rowing boat equipped with fresh water shower and an actual toilet.
Roc Expedition is the only company in USA that offers designing, building and outfitting Ocean Rowing boats, as well as orginizing affordable ocean rowing expeditions on record setting routes.
Join us for 2012-2013 expeditions onboard our ocean rowing catamaran, Big Blue.
