Here on BEING GREEN on FMR we followed the fortunes of Braam Malherbe and his rowing partner Wayne Robertson as they crossed the mighty Atlantic Ocean from Cape Town to Rio de Janeiro in the Mhondoro, a rowing boat with a cramped cabin, some rechargeable batteries, food of course, and a solar-energy driven fresh water device. No sails, no motor, just oars and arm and leg power.
After 8000 kilometres, through storms and squalls, more than 2-million pulls on the oars, they made it, staggering ashore after 92 gruelling days. An achievement that really beggars description.
