Queens Man Reunites with Rowboat for Transatlantic Row in Canary Islands
Victor Mooney of Flushing, New York, reunited with his 24′ rowboat christened the Spirit of Malabo over the weekend.
Mr. Mooney and his vessel is currently at Pasito Blanco Yacht Club in Maspalomas, Gran Canaria, which is in the Canary Islands. The Canary Islands is an archipelago of islands located off the coast of Morocco in West Africa.
After some technical installations and a favorable offshore forecast, Mr. Mooney will row five-thousand miles to Brooklyn, New York. The rower hopes his journey will encourage voluntary HIV testing.
