Briton attempts to cross Indian Ocean in rowboat

Roz Savage has set off from Australia for the 4,000-mile journey.

Sydney: A British woman has set off from Australia in a bid to row across the Indian Ocean.

Roz Savage left Fremantle, in Western Australia, on Wednesday in a 23-foot (7-meter) purple rowboat for the 4,000-mile (6,400-kilometer) journey.

Savage has already rowed across the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. The Ocean Rowing Society says that if she successfully crosses the Indian, she will become the first woman to have rowed across three oceans.

Savage uses her long-distance rowing adventures to promote environmental causes and raise awareness of plastic debris polluting the ocean.

Her journey is expected to last four months.
