World record holding
all female ocean rowing team

About the challenge

On August 8th 2014, Boatylicious set a new Guinness World Record by being the First Female Four to complete a 2,400 mile self-supported row across the Pacific Ocean. Setting off from Monterey Bay, California, the team arrived in Honolulu, Hawaii after 50 days 19 hours 14 mins.

"I am full of admiration for the crew of Boatylicious - this is a feat of endurance and endeavour that ranks with any of the great contemporary feats of exploration."

MEET THE CREW

Half of the crew had no real prior rowing experience and all four had to organise the challenge around their jobs. This made just getting to the starting line almost as difficult as the actual row.
