Have you ever wanted to row across and ocean but didn’t know how to go about it? Have you read about Roz Savage’s experiences on her expeditions and wished you could do something similar? If you answered yes to those questions, then I’ve got some good news for you.
Expedition Manager Margaret Bowling is currently recruiting rowers for the first ever Caribbean Sea rowing expedition, which will take place early in 2012. The expedition will be conducted in two stages, the first running from Port St. Charles in Barbados and ending in Montego Bay, Jamaica, and the second departs Montego Bay for Cancun, Mexico. The journey is set to begin on March 10th and is expected to run until April 28th.
The crew will consist of 14 crew and 2 skippers, with the team taking shifts of two hours on, two hours off throughout the voyage. They’ll be rowing a specially designed rowing catamaran called Big Blue, which I’m told is the largest ocean rowing boat in the world. As you can imagine, a reasonable level of fitness is required, as is a basic knowledge of rowing as well. Applicants will be vetted by the skippers before they are approved to join the crew.
If you’re interested in being a part of this adventure or want more details on how you can join, send an e-mail to WhereFewDare@yahoo.co.uk.
This is going to be a physically and mentally challenging expedition, but for anyone who wishes they could go on a grand ocean adventure, it sounds like it is going to be fantastic.
