Who has now defined BAD ASS FEMALE to a degree that few mortals can hope to match?
Katie Spotz, 22, successfully rows solo across Atlantic.
Spotz made good time partly because she didn’t face any storms. As she approached South America she did hit strong currents and 20-foot waves, which struck from the side and swallowed her yellow 19-foot rowboat whole. Spotz found this insufficiently terrifying.
“This boat was designed to take 50-foot waves,” says Spotz. “I never got to see what it could do.”
She puts us all to shame. Inspiring story. Cool boat: popularmechanics.comby
