British adventurer Roz Savage is expected to paddle into Papua New Guinea's town of Madang tomorrow on her epic rowing voyage across the Pacific from Kiribati.

It's a journey that's never been attempted before. Savage is the first person to row across the Atlantic Ocean from Britain to the United States. A flotilla of traditional canoes was organised to escort her as she paddles into Madang port on her arrival tomorrow morning. The Former Governor of Madang Province and Owner of Madang Resort, Sir Peter Barter, says her voyage across the Pacific is an amazing adventure.
