Surviving A Perilous Atlantic Rowing Adventure

 University of Puget Sound graduate Jordan Hanssen and three other men attempted to row a boat 3,569 miles across the Atlantic from Senegal to Miami. The journey would have set a Guinness World Record for the longest unassisted, human-powered row — had they made it.  But the boat capsized, and the rowers were rescued by the Coast Guard. Ross Reynolds interviews Hanssen about the adventure.
