    Send me a message if interested!

    Best Wishes,

    Yours in Rowing,

    If I was going to row for 50-60 days over 2100 nautical miles across a section of the World’s largest ocean :eek: I think I would be looking for someone with years of experience at rowing and a list of water safety certificates, I would also be looking for a medical cert from them before I forked out around €100.000 for the boat and all the equipment. If you haven't done anything like this before Philip maybe have a go at the Irish sea first and see how you find that. I also think a years training will not be enough to get a body into shape for this type of challenge.
    I wish you the best of luck if you do decide to do it and hope you keep us posted.
