Stein Hoff Tossed Overboard!

A report comes in this evening that Police Gazette-sponsored ocean rower Stein Hoff was thrown overboard by a large wave. He is back on-board and safe, but there was some minor damage and soaking. He reports that a “wave hit from starboard side, suddenly the boat is on its side and I in the water… The next hour I spent soaking wet securing items on deck better while getting the sea anchor ready and got it out with nearly 100 m rope, then with chattering teeth changed to the SeaWind survival suit.”

Stein’s progress has stopped for the moment. But he is regrouping and waiting for opportune conditions to continue.
