A random twist of fate (very long story) led me to be introduced to the story of 4 inspirational young ladies who have just smashed 2 World Records whilst competing in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge (TWAC). The girls are (from L to R) Bella, Olivia, Gee and Lauren, and they are ‘Row Like A Girl’.
The girls rowed over 3,000 miles (from La Gomera to Antigua) and are the youngest female team to have ever rowed the Atlantic, they are also the fastest all female crew to ever row the Atlantic. A challenge like this requires incredible mental and physical strength, facing a hurricane, and many other challenges on route, the Row Like A Girl team faced the elements in their small 4 person rowing boat.
One of my lovely Clipper training crew mates (@CHarrisTweeting) recently completed his level 2 Clipper Race training and kindly shared an update with permission to re-post. Chris is going to be joining the 15/16 race which is currently off the coast of Australia. He is doing leg 5, racing from Australia to Qingdao, and will be onboard the Da Nang Vietnam boat.
