On 20 December 2015, Yorkshire Rows set off on a herculean challenge to row 3000 nautical miles across the Atlantic ocean. It is no surprise that more people have been into space or climbed Everest than have rowed the Atlantic. It takes a certain kind of person to keep going when faced with blisters, salt rash, and sleep deprivation. That is why this race is one of the toughest races on earth. We achieved our dream and successfully arrived in Antigua in 67 days picking up a world record, the oldest women to row any ocean.
Why did we do this… to raise as much money as we can for our chosen charities MAGGIES and Yorkshire Air Ambulance and to inspire others. If four working mums can row an ocean, with determination and hard work, anyone can achieve anything.
As a warm up in May this year we rowed across the North Sea from Suffolk to Holland. We are the first women to accomplish this huge challenge.
