British rower Roz Savage was given a rousing reception in Kiribati on Saturday as she completed the second leg of her mission to become the first woman to row solo across the Pacific Ocean.

According to the rower's website, the second leg of her marathon voyage, which began in Hawaii in May, has seen her travel over 3158 miles during 104 days at sea.

Savage is carrying out the solo row to raise awareness about climate change.
