Shelley Cook is trying to get 12 women to take part in a row from London to Paris this summer. Here’s her invitation to you all:
A 500 mile row taking six days and six nights with a team of 12 ladies rowing two hours on, two hours off. Starting at Westminster Bridge alongside Big Ben’s Tower and finishing at the Pont d’Iena alongside the Eiffel Tower.
It’s a massive challenge, life changing in fact.
More people have stood on top of Everest than have rowed the Dover/Calais Channel, and only a very few have rowed the distance between London and Paris.
The go dates are Mon 25 May to Mon 1 June (longer than just six days to allow for weather delays).
There are another two boats going that are a mix of celebrities and mere mortal non-rowers. I just love the idea of a group of ladies taking the challenge to them!
A brief overview is attached as a PDF. It contains basic information and should elicit a ton of questions – please fire them back and I’ll collate and answer to the whole group.
If you are interested please give me some feedback via email or phone.
If you know of anyone else who may be interested please forward this message on.
