Planning on rowing to catalina island with a friend. Don't know any of the obstacles or problems that we would encounter. Please let us know what we should prepare for and how long it will take. We are in good shape. I think I found an answer. Ummm, how do you row a sturdy raft ? Doesn't seem like you would make much headway. My guess is the southerly current in the Santa Barbara Channel will sweep you south and past Catalina Island and into the Naval firing test range off San Clemente and/or San Nicolas Islands. . As an alternative why not drive to the southern tip of South America.
WSJ's Stu Woo wanted a taste of Olympic-level rowing so he asked the Winklevoss twins of "The Social Network" fame, to teach him.
