What’s on Board

The SECTOR NO LIMITS American Pearl weighs 1,500 pounds fully loaded. Tori, her equipment and supplies comprise about 700 pounds of the total weight. Food and water for the 100 to 120 day voyage may sound like a lot, but it must all fit into the 20 water tight compartments on board. The safety, navigational and rowing equipment, food, and clothing are critical to Tori’s success, but she’s managed to find a little extra room for a "luxury" or two.
