Lia Ditton - Women's World Record Rower

Play
Read more
Lia Ditton from www.rowliarow.com rowed for 86 days straight in the Pacific Ocean, from the West Coast of California all the way to Hawaii. She rowed for an average of 24 miles per day through winds and currents. When she sleeps, she has a sea anchor but it doesn’t keep her exactly in the place where she stopped rowing. She has to regain whatever distance she lost when she wakes up. For 86 days she was alone; nobody around, nothing around. Only the vastness of the ocean. She entered the Molokai channel which is so turbulent that I won’t even try braving with my twin-engine powerboat. And, she has to row through that for 37 more miles, without sleep. She capsized twice. Almost fell out of the boat and only barely hung on. She could have drowned. A friend of hers set off a few weeks before she did, and they found her drowned, hanging on to the boat with one arm. Compare what Lia did to what you’re doing. Look at her consistency.

116 ~ Lia Ditton ~ Ocean Rower Extraordinaire

Play
Read more

Today’s guest is ocean rower, Lia Ditton. I chatted with Lia back in episode #80 almost exactly one year ago. I highly recommend going back and listening to that episode if you haven’t already hear it or if you did hear it and want a refresher, it’s going to give you a lot of background on today’s episode.

I wanted to circle back around with her because she is about to embark on a pretty incredible journey. She’s planning to be the first person to row across the North Pacific from Choshi, Japan to San Francisco. She had originally intended to do that row this year but she’s pushed that until next year and this year she will be rowing from San Francisco to Hawaii – getting herself and her boat part way to her start in Japan.

When she completes this trip from Japan, she will have been the first person to have done so.

In this episode she describes her most recent training rows that she’s done that have put her up close and personal with sharks as well as close encounters with other boats—the captains of some of these boats likely thought she needed rescuing (which was actually quite far from the truth). But in these training rows she had some harrowing experiences which she goes into in some great detail. The thing that strikes me about Lia is how methodical she is in her approach to her ultimate goal of rowing the North Pacific. If a person were to just hear about her adventure and ultimate goal, they might immediately have doubts about whether Lia could accomplish this mission. But when you hear ALL of the preparation that goes into it, all of the training, all of the hardships that she endures in the name of training for this big expedition, you realize that her goal is really quite possible.

She’s planning on departing for her San Francisco to Hawaii row sometime between mid-April and mid June (it will all be weather dependent) and you can follow her at rowliarow.com.

With that, please enjoy this conversation with Lia Ditton.

Today's conversation is with Lia Ditton.

Lia is a professional sailor and rower and she’s accomplished some amazing feats. At 25, Lia was the youngest competitor and the only woman to sail across the Atlantic in a race called the OSTAR. She did that solo!

She’s gone on to compete in many other single-handed sailing races including the Route du Rhum which goes from France to the Caribbean, and the Transpacific Yacht Race which goes from California to Hawaii.

She then got into ocean rowing and, among other things, did the Woodvale Challenge which is from the Canary Islands to the West Indies.

But now, NOW Lia is training for a 5,500 mile solo row across the North Pacific from Japan to San Francisco. Yeah, 5,500 miles across the Pacific. Though two men claim to have completed this, as we talk about in this conversation, these guys technically did not complete the journey. You’ll hear how they fell short of the final miles and what Lia has planned for her own adventure so that she actually completes the entire route.

This is a pretty fascinating conversation. We take a deep dive into her training, what she’s doing to get ready for this big event and also her diet, which includes a 900 calorie breakfast.

We talk a lot about logistics because I had SO many questions since I know so little about sailing and ocean rowing. She really indulged me and allowed me to ask a lot of really basic questions. You're going to love this amazing conversation with Lia Ditton.
