WHERE DID IT ALL START

Rowing the impossible

Blame Charlie…


Charlie’s dream to row the Atlantic formed whilst she was on a polar expedition in Norway, camping under the Northern lights in -20°C. Whether this was due to mild hypothermia we shall never know, but her next challenge was already on the horizon and plans to race in TWAC started to form.

Then COVID-19 hit rocking the boat and causing deferral by a year due to work commitments but in doing so allowed Adam to research sea sickness cures and jump on board;

The Emergensea Duo were formed!

Ocean

With a love of water and desire to undertake an extreme mental and physical challenge, this adventurous couple are aiming to set a new  world record, raise money for frontline medical charities and promote equality in ultra-events.

IT GOES DEEPER THAN

Rowing
the Atlantic

With their minds and bodies already adapted to stress and sleep deprivation they wanted to venture to the edge of their limits, to truly see how far they can go. In doing so they hope to empower others to aspire to seemingly unattainable goals.

MEET THE CREW

Two Doctors

Charlie

Skipper | Emergency Medicine Doctor | Wife

The mastermind behind the Emergensea Duo’s Atlantic crossing, Charlie will be tested again as the chief navigator for the GB row. She is most looking forward to having coffee on board this time to accompany the sunrises and wildlife sightings but is little apprehensive about using the bucket so close to civilisation.

Adam

First Mate | Emergency Medicine Doctor | Husband

Having overcome his crippling sea sickness on the Atlantic and regained the 9kg in weight lost during the race, he is now ready to take on another 2000 miles of ocean. He is most looking forward to the coastal section around Scotland and hopefully coming across some basking sharks. He has retained his position as captain morale and chief snack finder.
