Rowing 3,000 miles, across the Atlantic Ocean, solo and unsupported.
Who am I?
I'm Tom, a physics and astronomy teacher working in North-East Lincolnshire.
What am I Doing?
Dubbed the "World's toughest rowing race" the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge is a gruelling 3000-mile unaided ocean row across the Atlantic ocean from La Gomera to Antigua. I will be rowing it solo!
Why am I Doing it?
To show our students that anything is possible!
Young people face huge challenges. Growing up in austerity, moving in and out of various lockdowns and restrictions, uncertain examinations, and the constant barrage of social media.
Raise money for amazing charities
I hope to raise over £50,000 for charities that aim to make the future a better, safer, and cleaner place to be.
