Caspar Zafer (S 89-92) is an actor and commercial producer living "between LA and New York"! He’d rowed at university and had long thought about some sort of endurance event – and so, when he spotted an article about a rowing race across the Pacific, he decided to investigate further.
The rest is history. Put together in a scratch crew of four, he and his team "Uniting Nations" won the first 2,400 mile Great Pacific Race, crossing the Pacific in a world record time of 43 days, 5 hours and 30 minutes.
