The Low-Tech Times previously reported that Katie Spotz might be embarking on a solo trans-atlantic rowing trip this month. However, the trip is postponed until December 2009 according to this email received from Spotz. Katie is still trying to line up sponsors:
Thanks for the email. Sorry for the late response, I was gone running across the Colorado and Mojave desert!!
I depart in December of 2009. The original plan was to depart in 2008 but pushed it back in order to find more sponsorships.
Preparations are going well. Next week I am heading over to the UK to secure the boat for the row. I’m super excited to say the least! The new website for the row will be open next month so check back soon for more pictures of the boat and equipment. Other than that, I still have a bit more work on the sponsorship front but have a couple potentials.
Thanks for posting the article on your site…
