Next crossing

In 2014, Joseph started to work on his project to row across the ocean. During his three years of preparation, he followed the great steps of a project preparation and completed, with his teammate, a first crossing in 2017.



During his preparation, he collected a lot of information about this sport and contacted many ocean rowers to get suggestion, acquire knowledge and be ready for every situation.
