2,000 MILES AROUND THE COAST OF BRITAIN ALONE FOR UP TO 100 DAYS AT SEA
IN A 7 METRE ROWING BOAT

Circumnavigating the British Isles by man power alone, is w​​​​​​​​​​​​​​idely regarded as one of the toughest ocean rowing endurance challenges on the planet

....This is a serious undertaking for even the most experienced ocean rower.
Until this year however, Andy Hodgson had never set foot on a boat before.
​​
Andy is attempting to become the first person to row solo around Britain,
with the goal of raising £10,000 for the RNLI and MIND.​

Now that I've made it to the start line, the fundraising for my
chosen charities really kicks off. MIND and the RNLI
are a couple of fantastic charities so please dig deep. 
It will keep me going and raise a bundle of cash for two very deserving causes.
Don't forget you can always club together to buy something from the list or you can simply donate an amount of your choice.

Meet Andy

Here's a short video introducing the challenge and the chosen charities.

Andy is hoping to raise a bundle of cash for two very good causes.

Meet The Boat

This is the Spirit of Ahab, a Rannoch R15 Off shore rowing boat. Measuring just 7 metres from bow to stern, she will be home for the duration of the challenge.

You can learn more about her and take a tour of the boat on the EQUIPMENT page.

Shameless Begging and Such
Take a tour around the boat, including all of the equipment and provisions required to complete the challenge.

​The amount of equipment required to eat, sleep and survive at sea 24 hours a day for up to 100 days will shiver your timbers. 
Learn a bit about Andy and what he's up to.

There's a huge amount of training and prep that goes in to a challenge like this.
... Until last year Andy had never set foot in a boat before. 
You can help us to raise funds for seriously worthy causes and be a part of the Round Britain Row.

It's like an evolution of getting sponsors on a sheet of paper for the local fun run, except I promise not to knock on your door.

Fun Fact # 1 - Assuming wind and tides don't push the boat off course,
averaging 2.6 knots (approx 3mph) over 2,200 miles = 733 hours on the oars. 

Fun Fact # 2 - The wind and tides will push the boat off course.
