2 MEDICS + ROWING BOAT

1 year & 5000 miles of ocean rowing in the world’s toughest rows

La Gomera to Antigua | December 2021

Around GB Row | May 2022

MORE THAN A TEST

From A&E to the Sea

With just over three months on dry land, having finished the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, Adam & Charlie are set to circumnavigate GB.

 

These two rows completely contrast each other making for one hell of a challenge to complete in the same year. The 3216 miles across the Atlantic were remote, sweltering, with very little wind & with few obstacles to crash into, except for the odd shark! Their circumnavigation of GB will see their navigational skills tested to the extreme with land within easy reach, cold, wet & gusty conditions plus the busiest shipping lanes in the world to contend with - not to mention the wind farms they need to avoid! This expedition also gives them a fantastic opportunity to continue fundraising for their frontline medical charities and push towards their £100,000 target.

WHO WE ARE

Around GB Row 2022 is a gruelling 2,000 mile challenge. This independent, unsupported circumnavigation will see them depart from Tower Bridge, London, arriving back around 7 to 8 weeks later. This row is considered to be one of the toughest rowing challenges on the planet, with only two pairs teams ever having completed it; there has never been a mixed pairs team to attempt it.
