70 Year Old Attempts to Row Across the Atlantic

A 70-year-old Norwegian man has embarked on the biggest adventure of his life – an attempt to row across the Atlantic Ocean. Stein Hoff pushed off on Sunday from a Manhattan pier, headed for England. He hopes to get there in about three months. Hoff brought along all the supplies he needs, with no chase boats or other assistance. His 7m row boat has GPS, a satellite phone and a VHF radio.

Hoff’s feat is sponsored by Ripley’s, an entertainment franchise that will chronicle the trip with images on its blog and social media.
