Peggy's Progress Maps and Chart

peggy-4_small.jpg (2254 bytes)

May 27..."This afternoon Peggy Bouchet on board Sector No Limits activated her
Argos Beacon and sent an emergency signal. Chrisophe Hebert from Columbia
River was in Guadellope when he recieved this information and he immediately
chartered a plane and proceeded to the last known position. At first
Christophe did not see Peggy but then he saw a flare. This meant Peggy was
safe. Christophe flew around Peggy for 2 hours until a second plane arrived
and with great skill was able to drop a life raft close to Peggy. She was
seen to get into the life raft. A freighter has been dispatched to her
position which is 80 miles from Guadeloupe and will stand by "  Gerard d'Aboville          

The Ocean Rowing Society will post more news as we receive it...

World Map and Comparison Map of Peggy's Progress...

(Record Solo East to West Atlantic 73days 8hrs)

      Ocean Rowing Society earlier stated that Peggy may break the solo record for Atlantic Crossing by Hugh King- Fretts of  99days. After careful review of Sidney Genders logs, generously donated by his daughter Isabelle York to the Ocean Rowing Society, we find Sidney's time rowing solo the Atlantic from the Canaries to Antigua as follows: 73 days, 8 hours,  which we believe stands as  the record. The saga   about  "Sidney's row" is  in "The Ocean Rowers" by Kenneth F Crutchlow and Steve Boga. Peggy may become the FIRST WOMAN TO ROW ANY OCEAN. A remarkable accomplishment in the annals of ocean rowing.
