Along The Way They:

  • Earned 2 Guinness World Records for being the FASTEST and the FIRST three-man crew to ever row the Atlantic Ocean
  • Became the first Texans to ever row an ocean
  • Became the first Admirals in the Texas Navy on the High Seas since 1846
  • Survived storms, massive waves, sleep deprivation, and extreme fatigue
  • Witnessed countless dolphins, whales larger than their boat, and a 700+ pound sea turtle
  • Raised awareness to help construct Houston's first rowing boathouse on the banks of Buffalo Bayou for the Rice University Rowing Club
  • Honored the memory of a fallen Houston heroine: Firefighter Anne McCormick Sullivan, Houston Fire Department (their boat's namesake)
