About the Boat

This is not just any boat you’re helping to name – it is a boat that will be rowed in the Woodvale Challenge Atlantic Rowing Race from La Gomera, Canary Islands to Antigua, West Indies (approximately 2,900 nautical miles across the Atlantic Ocean).   Currently the only American team signed up to race is comprised of all women rowers, including Anne Miltenberger, Kelly Nothstein, and Lauren Greenspon, who plan on making history by breaking the world speed record for the route they are rowing, while trying to bring attention to the environment by supporting Keep America Beautiful.  We need your help naming the boat of these transatlantic rowers!

    My boat name suggestion is “Cassiopeia”.

    I also tweeted you at

    I own the Schooner Isaac H. Evans and we sail in the Maine windjammer fleet. We are the only windjammer that has ever had an all-female crew. Some of the boats have come close but they all have male captains so that doesn’t count!

    I’ll be cheering for you and wish you a safe passage.

  2. Ron Hekier Says:

    My suggestion is “Alethia” the greek goddess of truth. On a voyage such as this, only the truth remains.

    Safe passage!

  3. Rachael Keilin Says:

    OK, I’m not as classically oriented as the above commenters. How ’bout shattered glass ceiling? Great Expectations? Something female power oriented
    Best of luck!

  4. Nancy - Your Cruising Editor Says:

    Just call it SIMPLE PLAN as the idea of saving the enviroment doesn’t need to be complicated, just as crossing a body of water doesn’t need always require expensive or high tech boats.
    Keep it simple Ladies.
    Good Luck.

  9. Tyne Caouette Says:

  10. Julie Hendrix Says:

    I wanted to enter my name suggestion for the boat “ALL IN STRIDE” First I am so proud of these women Anne, Kelly & Lauren for being the only American Women to row across the Atlantic-God Speed ahead. I thought of them being All together in stride. All in stride means : In good spirits, to get all you can get within a single step.

    It might sound odd, but I say go with Purple Loafer… its a play on the shoe Penny Loafer. It looks like a womans small shoe to me!

  16. Audrey Says:

    “Flower Rowers” as a pun on flowing, the ease with which you will all reach your destination, and flowers, the reference to the feminine divinity of the all female rowers.

    The hull is the body of a boat or ship, and therefore it is responsible for keeping your yacht afloat. Hull maintenance and repair depend largely on the type of yacht you have and what material it is made of. Most modern yachts are made of fiberglass or glass-reinforced plastic (GRP), an inexpensive and sturdy material that requires little effort of maintenance. Fiberglass hulls have a gel coat finish, which gives shine to the boat and thus has to be periodically polished and cleaned. The gel coat is susceptible to UV rays, and your yacht may suffer from cracks after some years of sunlight exposure. Bumps and scratches, by the way, are also common causes of hull cracks. Now, if your yacht has gel coat damage, it means water can seep between the laminate and the coat, which will peel off the coat. Therefore, these damages must be taken care of right away. Generally, you must reapply the gel coat once every ten years.
