 “Sixteen Rowers, One Improbable Boat, Seven Tumultuous Weeks on the Atlantic” is the sub-title of this dramatic and hilarious true tale of a human-powered voyage across the Atlantic Ocean. At the start of 2011, author Charles Wilkins, an amiable Canadian sixty-something, set off with 15 other men and women to row a specially designed boat from Tarfaya, Morocco, to Port St. Charles, Barbados, attempting to set a new world rowing record. What ensued was a grueling expedition demonstrating that the greatest challenges to the trip were not out in the waves and storms but aboard the vessel.
