Quebec rower Mylène Paquette has arrived in Lorient, France, after a  voyage across the Atlantic Ocean, the first North American to row solo, from west to east, across the North Atlantic, reports CBC News.

Mylène left Halifax just over four months ago in a specially designed 7.3 metre boat propelled only by herself and the currents.

Earlier in her voyage, In September 2013, the lone rower got a helping hand from the cruise ship Queen Mary 2, after being hit by the remnants of Hurricane Humberto, losing key items including her anchor, iPhone and satellite phone.

The cruise liner received her call for assistance and agreed to help out the young rower with the crew donating food and supplies to her, including a new satellite phone and two anchors.

Professing herself to be weak and tired on arrival in France, the rower thanked those who had helped her along the way.
