Weʼre raising £10,000 to help towards the total cost of the ocean rowing boat we need to cross the Atlantic in! 3 women, 1 Boat, 1 Ocean, 3000 miles!
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
We are looking for help to raise money so we can follow our dreams to row across the Atlantic! We are just three ordinary women from Norfolk who want to do the extraordinary! We are looking to take part in the ‘Talisker Whisky Atlantic challenge’ but to do this we need to raise money. This money will help towards the cost of an ocean rowing boat, which we will need to get us across the ocean safely! This wonderful piece of kit will be our home for up to 90 days but we are aiming to do the 3000 mile row in under 45! We will be at the mercy of mother nature as we battle against the waves and the weather! We will be rowing punishing shifts of two hours, which will see us at the oars for two hours and then resting for two hours....I would say sleeping, but in this rest time we will be eating (we have to consume 10000 calories a day, just to break even), maintenance (including plunging into the water to clean the bottom of the boat...no one likes barnacles on your bottom!) and comfort stops (the bucket!)
We want to do this so we can raise awareness and money for our charities. We also want to challenge the norm, to inspire and educate! If we can inspire just one person to follow a dream, regardless of the sacrifice and hardship to achieve it then that will be an incredible legacy! We want to make others realise that a dream can become reality it just takes dogged determination!
We need the boat to get us to the start line....we need grit and determination to get to the end! But we need to do it as safely as possible, with all the equipment we will need along the way!
Please help any way you can in supporting our adventure...our dream! Be with us every stroke of the way! All 1.5 million of them!
