Four University of Puget Sound graduates are attempting to become the first Americans to row across the North Atlantic as participants in the first Atlantic Ocean Fours Race. The team, OAR Northwest, left New York Harbor on June 10.
JERSEY CITY, N.J. – Anchored by a great deal of national pride, a quartet's watery quest is underway.
Perhaps the most beautiful view Jordan Hanssen has ever seen is the North Atlantic spread out below him from atop Knocknarea Mountain, a broad hill on the west coast of Ireland.
Meet the members of the team:
Greg Spooner can’t help but be happy about how smoothly his team’s epic adventure is going.
If you happen to visit the Thea Foss Waterway on your lunch break Friday, you just might get a glimpse of the Northwest’s only ocean rowing boat.
When Jordan Hanssen first asked Greg Spooner if he wanted to row across the North Atlantic Ocean, Spooner gave the answer you’d expect, even from a guy whose business cards read, “Adventurer.”
