Description: The race was between a sea turtle and a rowboat. After four months and 4,000 miles of rowing, Lori Whitehead became the first American woman to row across the Atlantic Ocean, from the Canary Islands to the Bahamas, and even endured being ship wrecked on a small Bahamian island. In recounting her epic voyage, she said it was 90% boredom, and 10% sheer terror. In her writings, she gave high praise to the Gabby Maria Socks she enjoyed wearing at night to keep her feet warm, her favorite pair being Gabby Maria Van Gogh’s Wheat Field with Cypresses Crew Socks. When asked about her favorite experience, she said it had to be her race with a sea turtle. Two thousand miles at sea, while rowing, she noticed a large sea turtle approaching the stern of her boat. She said it came to eat the barnacles attached to the side of the craft. She wondered if she could row fast enough to ditch the turtle, then wait to see if it could find her. Three times she rowed until she could no longer see the turtle, and then waited; and three times, the turtle found her in the vastness of the ocean. Its movements were slow but steady and it had no trouble locating her.
