Anyone fancy a spot of rowing?


A timely shout out from a couple of ocean rowing teams due to  head out across the Atlantic this winter. Both crews will be departing from Agadir in Morocco in the first week of January and both teams have last-minute gaps in the crew. One is in a rather intriguing catamaran design boat – a novel concept.

If you’re free/fit/have a dollop of dollar kicking around then read on and drop the teams a line to say hello.

For further details please contact the skippers directly. Feel free to forward this email to anyone who might be interested but please only pass it onto those with relevant rowing, adventure and expedition experience. It is now so late in the day that the skippers will not have sufficient time to train a complete novice.
