WISHLIST

The outlay for an ocean rowing challenge like this can be prohibitively expensive for regular folk like Andy, which is why we need your help.
 
Andy has invested his life savings and then some in to the Round Britain Row, which will go a long way towards covering the costs of the challenge but it's not enough. Please give generously so that we can get the Round Britain Row to the start line and help raise a bundle of cash for our chosen charities.

HALF OF ALL DONATIONS WILL GO DIRECTLY TOWARDS OUR CHOSEN CHARITIES
You can club together to donate something from the WISHLIST below. We also have some quality keepsakes in return for your hard earned cash in our PERSONAL PACKAGES section.

​​Thanks for taking a look and getting involved with the Round Britain Row. This challenge would not be possible without your help and I really am grateful for all of the support, financial and emotional.

 - Andy.

MEET THE SPIRIT OF AHAB
               (Hopefully this won't end like Moby Dick)

This is the Rannoch R15 that will be home for the duration of the challenge.
Check out the EQUIPMENT page to learn more about her. ​

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.
