“Quebec rower Mylène Paquette is arriving in Lorient, France, after a solo journey across the Atlantic Ocean.
Paquette is the first North American to row solo, from west to east, across the North Atlantic.
She left Halifax just over four months ago in a specially designed 7.3-metre boat propelled only by Paquette and the currents.
At about 11:09 a.m. CET (5:09 a.m. ET) Paquette crossed the finish line in the northwest of France.…”
