Record Breaking Attempt to Row Across the Atlantic – New York (USA) to Falmouth (UK) June 2016

Update posted by Gillian Mara On Apr 02, 2016

A huge thank you to all of those who have backed me so far. Every little bit is helping and the words of support I am receiving is fantastic. I have been training hard, the crew have a lot to prepare and for me it feels a bit like a second full time job, but I know the end result will be worth it. The time and effort we put into our preparation now will make the difference for the row.

I have just got home from being on the south coast, where the crew have been training this past week. We took our boat, Liberty from Weymouth to Newhaven, this took a total of 35 hours and we covered over 100+ nautical miles. We got to see and feel what it will be like in the real thing in a couple of months time. In honesty, the boat feels small but also big at the same time, but I am sure that is something I will get used to that.

I hope to give another update soon, but please continue to support my effort to for myself and the crew to break three world records this summer! The money so far has helped fund lifejackets. harneses and other specialist safety gear.
