Row for freedom


  • The FIRST female crew of 6 plan to row 3000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean unaided
  • It should take 35–45 days, from La Gomera (Canary Islands) to Barbados
  • Christopher Columbus followed a similar route when he discovered America in 1492 and later in the 1800’s the Atlantic was used to transport millions of slaves to the USA
  • We will carry with us all the food and equipment needed for a successful crossing
  • The race starts in early December to coincide with the end of the hurricane season and to get the most benefit from the easterly trade winds and Atlantic currents
  • There is no room onboard for home comforts: no bathroom facilities, limited cooking ability and our diet will consist of high calorie expedition foods and snacks. We will drink desalinated water and sleep in a space smaller than a single bed!
