Event Details

In partnership with GBX, we are delighted to co-host this event on Wednesday June 14th, 2017 celebrating Exceptional British Endeavors with special guest Lia Ditton.

Lia Ditton  has more than 150,000 nautical miles of experience – the equivalent of 8 laps of the globe – and has competed at a high level in some of the world’s most challenging ocean races. She is in the Bay Area to train for her 2018 world record attempt to be the first woman to row solo across the Pacific.

The only woman to complete the OSTAR 2005 single-handed transatlantic race, the experience formed the basis of Lia’s 2006 installation, Absolute Solitude: One Woman, One Boat in which Lia lived on her boat next to the Tate Britain Gallery for 28 days – the same number of days as it took her to sail to America.

A licensed captain, Lia has since come 2nd in the Route du Rhum, France’s most-prestigious, single-handed transatlantic race; captained the boat from the film Waterworld starring Kevin Costner; become the 53rd woman to row the Atlantic and the 64th woman to row any ocean, and project managed the build of the largest solar-powered boat in the world.
