57-Year-Old Marine Veteran Becomes First Blind Man to Row Across Pacific Ocean

August 29, 2018

Steve Sparkes, a 57-year-old retired Marine, just completed his trek from California to Hawaii by boat without the ability to see! It was a 2,400-mile race and it was hardly smooth sailing. Along the way, he and his rowing mate, Mick Dawson, broke two oars and the boat capsized. Steven was greeted on steady ground by a group of supporters, friends and family after the 83-day-long journey. InsideEdition.com's Keleigh Nealon (http://twitter.com/KeleighNealon) has more.
