They say the biggest challenge in rowing an ocean is getting to the start line. Rowing across the Atlantic is not just a physical and mental challenge, it is a financial challenge too. We have a huge task of funding the row and importantly generating additional funds for our charity. At the end of the race, we will sell the boat and other substantial equipment and donate all funds to the Sea Ranger Service. That is why we are asking for your help.
How much does it cost to row an ocean?
We need to raise £139,000 to get to the start line. Post race we plan to sell the boat and as much equipment as possible - with all proceeds going to our charity the Sea Ranger Service.
The figures below give an indication of the cost breakdown.
