Raising money for Kidney Wales, Empire Fighting Chance and Oxford Hospitals Charity

Story

We are 3 ladies who have come together, with no prior rowing experience to take on the Worlds Toughest Row.

We will be rowing 3,000 nm from La Gomera to Antigua.

During our crossing we will row in excess of 1.5 million oar strokes, we will face up to 30ft high waves, extreme winds and likely storms, not to mention hand blisters and bum sores. Our boat will be carrying all our essentials which include freeze dried food, a water maker (to desalinate sea water for drinking water), 2 sets of clothes each (no room for fashion), emergency kit and survival equipment.

It is estimated that each crew member will use 800 sheets of toilet paper, we will burn in excess of 5,000 calories per day with the average rower losing around 8kg during the crossing and will require 5l of drinking water a day minimum.

Oh and did we mention there is no toilet on board!

It is a true test of physical and mental strength, determination and resilience.

Our crew is made up of a yacht master, an adventure enthusiast and an ironman triathlete. We are not your typical crew, but we each bring something different to the party. We are aiming for a safe, efficient, fast and fun crossing to Antigua.

Please support each of our chosen charities (and read our reasons why we have chosen them) to help raise funds for causes close to our hearts.
