Story

At the end of May 2018 I am going to attempt to row solo across the North Atlantic Ocean, from New York to Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis, Scotland. I am hoping to complete the crossing of 3400 miles in just over 3 months. Only 13 people have ever successfully completed this crossing solo and no one has ever attempted the route I will be taking. 

Due to the lack of a favourable weather window I have relocated 300 miles south to Norfolk, VA. It is disappointing that I will not be departing from New York as I had always intended but the challenge remains the same...to row solo across the North Atlantic Ocean.

I am fundraising for the Scottish Association for Mental Health (SAMH) and am also aiming to raise awareness about mental health issues in general. We all know someone who is suffering, or has at some point suffered, in some way with regard to their mental health. I am hoping to raise at least £100,000 for this cause and any donation that you feel you can make will be hugely appreciated and will go towards helping SAMH continue their valuable work.

Thanks so much for your generosity.
