Heather Taylor

Heather Taylor stands aboard her boat Wave Dancer as she prepares to begin rowing from Monterey toward Hawaii in the early morning hours of Tuesday, May 11. Taylor is attempting the 2,500-mile journey solo, and raising money for women living in poverty. A small group of friends and supporters accompanied Taylor out of Monterey Harbor last night, playing music and offering words of encouragement during her first mile of rowing.
