Rowers are left with their own thoughts, an expanse of the ocean and the job of getting the boat safely to the other side.The race offers different experiences to all involved. The challenge creates strong friendships and competitiveness gives way to the camaraderie that is required to complete the challenge.

Upon finishing, rowers join a small community of friends that have shared the adventures of an ocean crossing.
