At the National at the weekend, a few expressed an interest in my planned rowing across the Atlantic this coming December/ January. I'll add something here later, just links to website etc, doing it in aid of RNLI in case anyone wishes to donate

Is that the Talisker Challenge? https://www.talisker...icchallenge.com

 

We've had a team this year, and have one for next year taking part. Vodafone enter a mens boat and a womens boat.

Not talisker, but similar route, talisker is expensive, so doing an independent run ( well row)

Sounds like utter madness to me!  But hats off to you, I'm sure it will be an epic challenge!

 

Let me/us know if/when you set up a charity page, I know quite a few boating types who I'm sure will give generously...

 

Will you have any form of tracking to follow progress?  I'll be up for watching where you are while sitting on the sofa in front of a roaring fire!!

 

Good work Ivor! :tt:

The boat will have a YB tracker which plots my position, well the boat's position, on a chart, accessible through a web portal, will share the details when it's up and running
Will do re the charity page
