Rowing for Children: For those of you who have been keeping track of Erden Eruç’s progress as he rowed—singlehanded—from the waters off California to those off Papua New Guinea, you can hear a first-person account of the adventure at the Corinthian Yacht Club in Tiburon on November 6. Click on the link to learn more, or to RSVP.

From Erdun: “There will be dinner beginning at 6 p.m. and I will begin my presentation at 7 p.m. about my row across the Pacific Ocean from California shores to the Papua New Guinea waters…  This singlehanded crossing by oars was especially meaningful for me since we raised about $47,000 for charity during that crossing to benefit the rural primary school children in regional boarding schools in Turkey.

“If you can join us, I will be thrilled to get a chance to see you again, and some of you I will meet in person for the first time.  If you have friends in the Bay Area who are rowers, kayakers, sailors, climbers, bicyclists, philanthropists or just interested in a good story, please feel free to inform them of the RSVP page above.

“Would you consider helping us? We need help in reaching Classrooms for students, Boardrooms for corporate sponsorships and for speaking engagements, also living rooms for the general audience and donations.  Please contact us with your ideas…  Around-n-Over HumanPoweredJourney”
