French Woman Attempts Row Across Atlantic

French woman Peggy Bouchet launched her 25-foot boat from the Canary Islands in an attempt to become the first woman to row across the Atlantic alone. Bouchet, a 24-year-old engineer, plans to row 3,000 miles to the Caribbean Islands in three months.

Bouchet is in contact via radio with the Ocean Rowing Society of Britain.
