I am a member of a 6 man team who will race the ocean rowing boat Sara G across the Atlantic Ocean from Morocco to Barbados in January 2012 - we will cover a distance of 2,500 nautical miles non-stop and unsupported.
Our aim is to set a new Guinness World Record for the crossing - the current record stands at 33 days.
More people have climbed Mount Everest than have crossed an ocean through their own physical exertion - so this challenge will be a big one to say the least. Those of you who know me are aware that this has been an ambition of mine for several years now and I am very excited about it.
I am rowing to raise funds and awareness for the children's charity PLAN INTERNATIONAL and more specifically for their Because I Am a Girl campaign.
'Because I am a Girl' is Plan’s current flagship campaign to help break a cycle of poverty and gender discrimination. The aim is to give girls in some of the world’s poorest countries the chance of an education and a new future.
Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
So please dig deep and donate now.
Many many thanks.
