Our Favorite Quotes from Erden Eruc

Dreams are waiting out there.

Dreams are the hints of what we could become.

Dreams are the fertile ground on which the future takes root.

We should not ignore that.

Once I was able to get to the finish line I had by then become the person who could get it done. I had grown to become that person. If I wasn't that at the beginning [of my journey] I had become that person.

About Erden Eurc

Seattle resident, Erden Eruc (pronounced 'Air-den Air-rooch') completed the first solo circumnavigation by human power in 5 years and 11 days. What started as a simple idea in 1997, become a quiet obsession. A tragic accident which claimed the life of Göran Kropp while rock climbing together in September of 2002, finally put him in motion. Life was too short.

Erden is the leading ocean rower in the world today. He is the recipient of the 2013 Citation of Merit from the prestigious Explorers Club, one of the 2013 Adventurers of the Year – “nine individuals changing the face of global adventure” by Outside Magazine, and one of the 50 Most Adventurous Men by Men’s Journal. He is already listed in the 2009, 2012, 2014, 2017 & 2018 Guinness books of World Records, including:

  • First to complete a solo circumnavigation of the world by human power

  • First to row the three oceans: Atlantic, Pacific and Indian
