Jo Jackson

On April 19th 2009, Jo Jackson, as part of the first ever Indian Ocean Rowing Race, braved the Indian Ocean with all that it has to offer. They had no engine and no sails, just the strength of their bodies, sheer determination, and 4 oars to get them 3,100 nautical miles from Western Australia to Mauritius.
They rowed 2 hours on, 2 hours off, 24 hours a day, through extreme heat, severe weather and 40 foot waves. Dodging pirates, and trying not to attract the attention of any unfriendly marine life (think Jaws!), they were entirely self-sufficient. Becoming the first women on the planet to row across the Indian Ocean.
