MORE THAN A TEST

From A&E to the Sea

This December, Charlie and Adam, two A&E doctors are temporarily hanging up their scrubs and taking on the world's toughest row, The Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, rowing 3000 miles across the Atlantic.

Dubbed the Emergensea Duo, they hope to
raise £100,000 for charities that encompass saving lives by air, land and sea: The Devon Air Ambulance, RD&E charity, RNLI & Mind. They will race against 37 other International teams,
and aim to beat the mixed pair world record which currently stands at
