Hi, I'm Michelle and this is my journey.
First of all, I am not a rower. By day, I am a Remedial Massage Therapist. By night (and by that I mean any other minute I have to spare!) I am training to row 5000kms across the Atlantic, solo.
This is an International event,professionally organised and fully supported. Crews can enter as a solo, pair or four. The race has strict rules and regulations and insist that mandatory courses are completed, for your safety. Your boat must be built to specifications and be fully equipped with the latest safety and navigational equipment.
The journey starts in La Gomera, Canary Islands and finishes up in English Harbour, Antigua. It is set in December - outside of the hurricane season, and will have predominately following winds, seas and currents. There will be 40 foot+ seas, 35 knot winds, sharks, capsizing, equipment failures, salt sores, blisters, mental fatigue, physical exhaustion.
It all happens in December 2018, and this is my journey. If you would like to be involved, find out more here.
