1,683 MILES NAVIGATING THE UK COASTLINE
One of the Worlds Busiest Waterways
In (sea)sickness, health and another row
BECAUSE ONE ROW JUST WASN'T ENOUGH
The Around GB
After just 3 months on dry land following the Atlantic row, in May 2022, Adam and Charlie departed from Tower Bridge, London on an independent, unsupported circumnavigation of GB. In doing so they became the first mixed pair in the world to attempt the challenge. They endured storm Alex, the hottest day on record, anchors dragging into rocks and an unprecedented 35 days on anchor sheltering from strong winds. Being so close to land that Adam & Charlie could smell the fish and chips but being unable to get off the boat or accept outside offers of food and drink was torturous. With unrelenting head winds on the east coast slowing their progress Adam & Charlie had to retire on day 71 in Scarborough Harbour after completing 89% of the circumnavigation to return to their work commitments. Being unable to complete the row was devastating but it taught them both a huge amount about mindset and finding happiness in the process, not in any single accomplishment. Success has no finish line.
