We are two ordinary women on an extraordinary mission to see just how far we can push ourselves while supporting two incredible charities.
In December 2020 we will be joining crews from all over the world to compete in the premier event in ocean rowing. The Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge will see us row over 3,000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean from La Gomera to Antigua.
Over the 2+ months it will take to complete the challenge, we will battle with sleep deprivation, salt sores, and physical extremes inflicted by the race. Left with just our own thoughts, an expanse of the ocean and the job of getting the boat safely to the other side.
In order to get to the start line, we need your help! Your support will go towards our boat, equipment and food for our crossing. Once we’re back on firm land we’ll be selling our boat and equipment (assuming it’s all survived) to future adventurers and donating the money raised to two amazing charities*…London Youth Rowing
andThe Youth Sport Trust
Believers in the power of sport to transform body and mind, we have chosen to support these two charities because they work to promote the importance of sport in the development of young people.
With your help, we are hoping to be able to donate close to £80,000 !!
With Victoria's rowing background and Saf's military expertise, we are determined to break the world record for the fastest female pair, set in 2018.
