She rOars - Rowing 3000miles across the Atlantic

Team She rOars!
We are Leanne and Sabrina, two ordinary women living in Scotland undertaking the extraordinary challenge of rowing 3000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean from La Gomera to Antigua, in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge 2023. As we grow from absolute beginners to seasoned ocean rowers in this new unaccustomed world we hope to INSPIRE and EMPOWER other women and girls to step outside their norm and go on their own ADVENTURE and DISCOVERY to reach for that previously unreachable goal.
 
For the duration of the race we will row two hours on two hours off, facing sleep deprivation, salt sores, physical extremes and the psychological challenges of the open ocean.
 
HELP US get to the start line!
 
STEP 1: We will need over £140000, which is mostly made up of the cost of our new R25 Pairs Boat at the cost of £65000.
 
STEP 2: We are rowing unsupported, this means we need to equip our boat, with safety equipment, navigation, solar panels, water maker, food for 65 days (with an excess of 4000 calories each), to the smaller stuff like sunscreen.
