Lots of people were asking me the same question—How did a 22-year-old woman row(划)a 19-foot boat for 70 days?Well,when I was on the sea alone,the biggest difficulty was the feeling of being lonely.
I started on January 3,2010.More than half the people who tried sailing alone often gave up in the first two weeks,so I decided to finish one-fourth of the sailing first,which took about 20 days.
Day 20th,January 22 came!I said to myself that I should be happy.But I was feeling so bad.It seemed to be the hardest day for me.I didn’t see land for over two weeks.Every day I did the same—rowing,eating,sleeping,watching the sky and the ocean...
Suddenly I saw someth ing breaking through the water near my boat.They were dolphins.They circled my boat and were close enough for me to touch.So I did!Suddenly I felt so moved,they came to say “Hello”,just when I needed it most.I was no longer lonely,believing that I would succeed.
And I made it!All 2,817 miles I got to the coast on March 14,after 70 days and five hours at sea.So the secret of my success is the moment with those dolphins.
