This Is Your Life Big Red Book

John Fairfax article

The Times 8 January 1970

Mr John Fairfax, the first man to row the Atlantic single-handed, announced on the television programme This Is Your Life last night that he and his girl friend intended to row the Pacific from California to Australia. His friend, Miss Sylvia Marrett, aged 29, of London, said the 10,000-mile trip did not frighten her.
