Story

I'm attempting to row across Europe from the Black Sea to the North Sea via the Danube (2800 km) and the Rhine (1200 km). I will be rowing upstream, against the flow of the Danube. I will be self-supported, I will carry everything with me, stopping in villages and towns along the way to buy food. 

It's an idea that has been brewing for a few years, and I decided to give it a go or forever be left wondering. I don't know if it's possible, and even if it is, it will certainly be demanding. I have relatively little training, and have rowed sliding sea boats twice - it's going to be a steep learning and fitness curve.

I won't be able to update this page regularly from the water, but please feel free to follow along on Twitter and Instagram: @LaurenceDyke. I will also be posting all my daily activity to Strava: strava.com/athletes/308807.

I would love to raise €4000 - one euro for every kilometre I hope to row. 

Thank you for your support of Médecins Sans Frontières; they help people and save lives in the most troubled parts of the world - I can't think of anything more noble or worthwhile.
