Hélène Rémond writes from France about the Ocean rower Mylène Paquette, who is right now in the middle of the Atlantic, solo rowing from West to East:

Canadian Mylène Paquette is aiming at becoming the first North American woman to row solo across the Atlantic from Canada to France, a distance of 2,700 miles (5,000 km). She departed on 6 July, 2013, from Royal Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron, Halifax, Canada, and her arrival location is Cité de la Voile Éric Tabarly, Lorient, Brittany, France.

Mylène spends her days rowing while observing the environment to later testify the presence of the marine fauna and the essential interdependence between humans and the Ocean. Mylene wishes to become a credible environmental spokesperson.
