STAR Theatre Free Lecture Series 

Rowing The Atlantic 

June 7 · 7pm · Free

 

In 2001, Tom Mailhot (Ipswich, MA) and rowing partner John Zeigler (NJ), were the only US team in the Atlantic Rowing Race. Unsupported, they rowed the 3000 mile race from the Canary Islands to Barbados in 58 days. At 42 and 51 years of age, they were the 2nd oldest of 36 teams entered. They encountered all types of weather, injuries and sharks along the way.

His story was made into the award-winning documentary “Row Hard No Excuses” that chronicled their voyage.  It is both an exciting sports-adventure story and an intimate portrait of the two-man crew that explores masculinity, midlife and ambition.

Come listen to Tom tell his entertaining tale along with a short video about his journey.
