Janice Jakait - Row For Silence
- Class: Ocean Rowing Boat
- Nation: German
- Residence: Speyer, Germany
In 2012, Janice Jakait crossed the Atlantic form Portugal to Barbados with a seaworthy rowboat within 90 days. Her project is not only concerned with finding herself but also with drawing attention to the harmful noise for marine animals resulting from container ships.
In 2013, Janice Jakait is planning a new Pacific crossing project – however, not in a rowboat again. Whether sailing, kiting or another way for crossing the ocean is not yet confirmed. Anyway, the basic idea of the campaign remains the same.
Marinepool is the official clothing supplier to Janice Jakait by supporting her project and her philosophy with functional sailing clothing as well as with maritime lifestyle fashion.
