French adventurer dies rowing solo across Atlantic Ocean

The body of a 75-year-old Frenchman who was attempting to row solo across the Atlantic Ocean has been found at sea.

Jean-Jacques Savin was “found lifeless inside the cabin” off the coast of Azores, an archipelago belonging to Portugal, said a statement posted to Mr Savin’s Facebook page by his support team.

“It is with great sadness that we have just learned of the death of our friend Jean-Jacques,” it read.

Portuguese maritime authorities had earlier located his vessel and a diver found Mr Savin’s body.

“Unfortunately, this time the ocean was stronger than our friend, who loved sailing and the sea so much,” the statement said.
