After rowing SOLO across the Atlantic Ocean in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge Michelle Lee arrived home in Sydney today. Her comments on arriving in Antigua after nearly 70 days at sea was ‘I’m really relieved to be on land. The isolation was overwhelming (at times) – there has been joy, I’ve been in awe of so many things, there’s been anxious, nervous – I’ve gone through the lot’.
Michelle heads back to her home town of Kellyville to revel in her successful journey with friends and local supporters. She will be resting from rowing for awhile, so she can mend her cut and damaged hands, which were sustained during the 3,000 mile ocean row.
