ROUND BRITAIN ROW
Solo circumnavigation of the British Isles.

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.
m
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.​

The row started on 13th May 2018, Andy will not set foot on land again until the challenge is over.

This map tracks the boat's position around the coast, updating once every 6 hours.

You may need to select Round Britain Row 2018 from the top bar. 

Fundraising 
Now that the row is underway, so is the fundraising.

MIND and the RNLI  are a couple of fantastic charities.
Your generosity is hugely appriciated. It will keep Andy going and help to raise a bundle of cash for two very deserving causes.

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 less than 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.

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.

The Boat and What Not
The Bloke and Bits 'n Bobs
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.
