Inspiration : 2400 Mile Row – San Francisco to Hawaii

I had the pleasure of meeting and photographing Sami Inkinen last year and he told me about the crazy adventure him and his wife Meredith Loring are planning.
On June 7th 2014 as part of the Great Pacific Race it’s a Go. They will row 2400 mile from San Francisco to Hawaii for approximately 2 month. Having no real open ocean rowing experience, preparing with an interesting training routine and committed to an unusual dietary approach without sugar, this will be a big challenge. Oh, and there will be no support boat going along …

I am seriously inspired.

You can follow them at FAT CHANCE ROW , donate to their cause in the fight against cancer and see their progress at Great Pacific Race.

Here is one of my shots of Sami training in the hills north of San Francisco.
