One of the most experienced ocean rowers in the world, Brit Mick Dawson has logged nearly 20,000 miles at sea. In 2009, after two successful Atlantic Ocean crossings, he skippered the first two-man team to row nonstop across the North Pacific Ocean, completing the 7,000-mile journey from Choshi, Japan to San Francisco in 189 days, 10 hours, and 55 minutes. Join Mick for a digital presentation of his epic journeys. Learn about his remarkable encounters with wildlife and how he met the extraordinary challenges of extreme weather and navigation hazards. Mick will also introduce the OAR project, where he’s providing support as Boat Manager for Andrew Morris and Roz Savage when they row across the North Atlantic in Mick’s specially designed ocean rowing boat, Bojangles, for the start of the 2012 Olympics in London.
