We are four friends from Sydney who are rowing across the Atlantic Ocean to raise money for The Black Dog Institute for Mental Health Research
In 2019, we will start our journey from Africa, rowing 2 hours on, 2 hours off, 24 hours a day, for straight days 45 days, until we reach the Caribbean (gulp!)
Our target is to raise $200,000 for our chosen charity The Black Dog Institute - and you can donate directly to them through our website (www.rowedlesstravelled.com)
However, we are also faced with a baseline cost of over $200,000 just to get to the start line.
The boat, on-board equipment, on-shore support, insurance (life and boat) etc. all cost money and, without these, our mission just isn't possible.
Put simply, coupled with our collective life savings we are relying on funds received from our Platinum, Gold and Silver Partners, 500 Club members & direct donations to help foot the bill.
The good news is that a lot of the costs incurred on the boat and equipment will be recouped on re-sale and all proceeds will go straight to Black Dog, so there won't be a penny wasted.
