Lia Ditton's World Record Attempt

First woman to row from Japan to San Francisco

In early 2018, Lia Ditton will depart from Tokyo to row 5,500 miles solo across the North Pacific to San Francisco. 18 people have attempted this route. Only two were successful. Both were men.

Lia will speak about her training regimen, past racing experiences, why she is taking on this challenge and how she is preparing to break this record. “Everyone who sees Lia raves about her presentation”.

Lia Ditton is an artist and a professional sailor passionate about sharing her extraordinary experiences at sea. Now 36, Lia has over 150,000 nautical miles of experience, eaten two years’ worth of freeze-dried food, gone a month without a shower and raced a sailboat over 40 knots!
