The big crossing: With the rowing boat across the Atlantic
Ciara Burns is full of anticipation. Your destination is Antigua. Turquoise blue sea, white sand, brown rum – you can endure it on the Caribbean island. A little rest won’t hurt the student. Because Burns does not travel by plane, nor does she get out of the dream ship. No, the 26-year-old is rowing across the Atlantic. The route from Tenerife to the Lesser Antilles is more than 2,600 nautical miles. So that inland residents can follow suit, that’s 4800 kilometers. Or 1600 times around the Gänsehäufel.
