REBROADCAST: Rowing across the Pacific

In the summer of 2018, Jacob Hendrickson pushed off from the coast of Washington in a boat made especially for him by a boat builder in Portland. He spent the next 10 months rowing across the Pacific Ocean. We spoke to him via satellite phone when he was anchored 30 miles off the coast of Australia, waiting for the weather to allow him to complete what will be the longest solo rowing voyage from North America across the Pacific.
