Salt Lake City, UT – If the winds and tides are just right next week, British rower Roz Savage will launch from the San Francisco harbor, bidding to be the first woman to row across the Pacific Ocean alone - a two year journey. She wants to prove that ordinary people can do extraordinary things. And it won't be the first time - last year she rowed the Atlantic alone. KUER'S Jenny Brundin caught up with Savage in Utah on her way to California, and filed this profile.
