Intrepid232 -Atlantic Ocean Rowing Challenge 2023

Hi, we are a team of 4 ladies from the Island of Jersey – Channel Islands, United Kingdom. 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. 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.
When we succeed in our journey across the Atlantic Ocean , in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, 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.

BUT first we have to raise money to be able embark on our fantastic sea journey and are grateful for for any donation.
