In November 2015 five amateur rowers from Shropshire in the UK will embark on an epic journey of adventure that has only ever been attempted once before.
The challenge….to row the navigable length of the Amazon River, from Nauta in Peru to Macapa in Brazil – a total distance of 2077 miles – totally unsupported.
We are not athletes, just five ambitious but otherwise ordinary men in our 40’s, determined to stretch ourselves, achieve something extraordinary and raise awareness and funds for some exceptional charities. For most of us, our first experience in a rowing boat of any kind was in late 2011 when we decided to row across the Irish Sea. Two Irish Sea crossings later, and with a host of other coastal and inland rowing adventures and races under our belts, we’ve decided to raise the bar.
We hope you will enjoy following our adventure and lend your support.
