All-Woman Crew Sets Record Rowing From San Francisco to Honolulu

Jul 28, 2022

A crew of four has broken the women’s record for the quickest time rowing from San Francisco to Honolulu. The record will now be listed in the Guinness Book of World Records.

Libby Costello, Sophia Denison-Johnston, Brooke Downes and Adrienne Smith finished their journey in Hawai’i on Tuesday after 34 days, 14 hours and 11 minutes.

The 2,400 nautical mile journey was completed by the women based on their two-hour rowing shifts. They only got around 90 minutes of sleep each day, too. Needless to say, the women admitted to Good Morning America that they are excited, but exhausted.

“I feel totally overwhelmed in the best way by love. And I’m also exhausted,” Denison-Johnston said.
