In 2005–06, Julie Angus, with her fiancé Colin, rowed 10,000 kilometers across the Atlantic Ocean, becoming the first woman in the world to travel from mainland to mainland in a rowboat. The 145-day journey gave Angus, a trained scientist, a unique perspective on the ocean. The slow-moving boat became an ecosystem unto itself, attracting barnacles, dorado fish, trigger fish, turtles, sharks, whales, birds, and more, which she was able to observe and document. Angus also saw unmistakable signs of the ocean’s devastation, with far more plastic bottles, wrappers, toys, and bags than sharks or other once-common sea life. Four cyclones, including two hurricanes, hammered the small boat so intensely that Angus and her companion weren't sure they would survive. Rowboat in a Hurricane records this amazing journey in meticulous, dramatic detail, in the process offering a personal record of an awe-inspiring ecosystem, its fascinating denizens, and the mounting threats to its existence.
Reviews about Rowboat in a Hurricane: My Amazing Journey Across a Changing Atlantic Ocean (7):
Snowseeker
Julie writes about her decision to become the first woman to rowe across the Atlantic ocean, the preparations involved and her choice of a rowing partner, who ultimately ends up being her adventurer fiance.
The thoroughly researched information about the ocean's flora and fauna and their run ins with various creatures along the way is most interesting.
Julie's brisk style made me read this book from cover to cover almost without stopping, and I would have loved to read on about the next step of their journey, the cycling from Costa Rica to Vancouver.
I appreciated her honesty about the hardships of life on a rowboat, and the doubts and fears she encountered along the journey.
Ranenast
She feels the reader with many details about truthful living for months at sea. Read IT.

Wow. The powerful sense of adventure and resilience of the young couple who embarked on this journey kept me riveted to each and every challenge they encountered.The story was exciting, terrifying and down to earth as well as simply well written. Bravo to these wild adventurers.
Barinirm
Well written, easy to read, action packed. Read Colin Angus "Beyond the Horizon" first then Julies as Julie details their Atlantic crossing in an amazing action packed novel. It's a five out of five on the wow scale.
Ygglune
I was captivated right from the start with this book. It is a gripping well told story and the author sure has guts doing the row in the first place, Thanks
Frostdefender
Excellent adventure journey by two people in love. The author is a good writer with a unique perspective. I love how she interwove the story of Colin and Julie with the rigor of rowing across the Atlantic and also some strong statements about the effects of global warming and her direct observations of environmental changes and pollution in the sea. An all-round great read.
Kelezel
A great story, and an interesting counterpoint and companion to Colin's "Beyond the Horizon", kind of like Don Starkell's "Paddle to the Arctic" and Victoria Jason's "Kabloona in the Yellow Kayak" (except that here the protagonists actually like each other a lot) ... :-)

Godo, author, "The Carbon Charter"
I read lots of global travel/adventure stories and this one rates very high! Julie's writing is very fluid and captivates from the opening pages. She expertly weaves the story of how she quit her secure day job to set out on an expedition with her fiance - in a tiny rowboat, battling hurricanes as they pull on oars and slowly make their way across the Atlantic ocean. I especially liked the descriptions of what it felt like to be alone on the seas, surrounded by the beauty of nature and marine life, and her observant descriptions of how the oceans are being influenced by climate change.
