Rowing across an Ocean in December 2023 in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Rowing Challenge is what we are going to do.
As a team of busy working mums, we want to show that age and gender are not obstacles in achieving something you really want to do and believe strongly in the power of our combined team focus to achieve this goal.
We live on Jersey – Channel Islands, United Kingdom, where the sea plays a massive part in our general lives, and we are fortunate enough to all live within a mile radius of the coast. Hence we are either on the sea, in it or under it most days.
When we succeed in our journey across the Atlantic Ocean, we will set a new Ocean rowing world record by being the oldest female crew to have rowed any ocean.
Rowing 2 hours on and 2 hours off, burning in excess of 5,000 calories a day over 3,000 miles, taking approximately 50 - 60 days, will be brutal, exhilarating and life-changing.
Along the way, we wish to raise funds for two charities close to our hearts; the Grace Crocker Foundation and the Blue Marine Foundation.
The Grace Crocker Foundation provides emotional and financial support for Jersey families who have children requiring medical support in the UK. The Blue Marine Foundation is a charity dedicated to restoring the ocean to health by addressing overfishing. It currently has a number of worldwide projects, and one of those is working with the Jersey National Trust in trying to protect the National park around the Jersey coast.
Thank you for visiting our gofundme page, your kind contribution will go directly towards the costs of our challenge, helping us get to the start line and allowing us to raise as much money as possible for our charities.
