Challenges to Overcome: Tides
Not only will the tides affect our speed and direction close to the coast but they effect the currents throughout the whole channel and expose hidden dangers that we will need to navigate around.
We will be at the following events. Come and say hi, ask us about our adventure, or have a go at our Erg Rowing Challenge!
Callington MayFest 2020 (Official - Hosted by CAVe)

Challenges to Overcome: Wind!
The prevailing wind in the English Channel is from the South West, meaning will be rowing against the wind for much of our row, if we're unlucky and the wind is very strong this could mean spending time on anchor and being bashed around in our little cabin until it clears, adding to our time at sea. #oceanrowing#L2L
Really fantastic article about the Oarsome Foursome, big inspiration of ours, who completed their epic row last night. Hope they're enjoying some well earned rest. 🥳 🌊https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-51103423
