Description:

From an Emmy Award-winning filmmaker, Losing Sight of Shore follows the extraordinary journey of four brave women, known as the Coxless Crew, who set out to row across the Pacific Ocean from America to Australia. After four years of extensive mental and physical training, the crew is ready to embark on the great unknown. The journey takes place in three stages: San Francisco to Hawaii, Hawaii to Samoa, and Samoa to Australia. The Coxless Crew row 24 hours a day, in 2-hour shifts no matter the conditions: four-story waves, a tropical storm, and an endless ocean all around. They lean on each other as they attempt to set two world records and capture their own intimate experiences at sea. The Coxless Crew row in support of Breast Cancer Care and Walking with the Wounded. Team Lead, Laura Penhaul, describes her personal motivation to row in honor of her friend Patricia who passed away. Beyond those reasons, the women are rowing to prove how powerful the human spirit can be, do something no team of four has ever accomplished, and see parts of the Earth no human has seen. As they row over 8,000 miles during their nine months at sea, they face extreme mental and physical challenges. From salt sores and extreme weather to impressive wildlife swimming alongside their faithful boat Doris, to missed holidays and family events, this team of rowers endures the unimaginable all in pursuit of greatness. This is the journey of perseverance, friendship, and the power of the human spirit.
