Midnight 17 June 2020 – In a time of widespread isolation, Lia Ditton rowed alone under San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge and out into open ocean. Almost three months later, Lia made landfall in Hawaii just before sunrise. Forty-five thousand people – including Hollywood actress Jennifer Garner – watched live, online as Lia rowed into the history books as the fastest and youngest woman to row the mid-Pacific solo. Sharks circled her boat. Twice she nearly drowned. 87 Days: Alone Rowing the Pacific is Lia’s story of survival; endlessly harrowing, ultimately triumphant.
