Atlantic Rowing Race 2007
In December 2007 Margaret and British rower Cath Allaway took part in the Atlantic Rowing Race from La Gomera in the Canary Islands to Antigua. The voyage took 73 days. The pair suffered numerous setbacks including a broken water desalinator, severe rationing and 19 major rudder repairs. They were the first female crew to cross the finish line but were officially disqualified from the race after being forced to accept a resupply.
