In this episode, All Things Endurance Host, Rick Prince, speaks with Jayme Linker. Jayme is a Colorado native who, along with her team, is planning to become the first individuals to row the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian oceans consecutively. They will be attempting this in 2024. Jayme discusses what it takes to train for such an endeavor, as well as what is required from a logistical point of view. It’s a fascinating discussion.
This podcast episode is unique in the fact that ocean rowing is not one of the ‘mainstream’ endurance sports and therefore, it contains a lot of eye-opening information. We hope you enjoy it!
