A huge thank you to everyone who turned out to celebrate the launch of Row + Ripple’s campaign to row the Atlantic Ocean in 2023!
It was brilliant to have over 100 people brave the winter weather and celebrate the occasion with us. We are delighted to have raised over £3,000 for our charities, Mind + Beat, so thank you to everyone who donated.
This marks the beginning of a two year journey to the start line of the Talisker Whisky Challenge 2023 when Row + Ripple will be rowing 3,000 miles from the Canary Islands to Antigua’s distant shores in the Caribbean. Rowing on and off in two hour shifts for up to two months at sea, it is a challenge of both physical and mental endurance.
It will also be nearly three years in the making and the result of months of fundraising, training and preparation. We see this as an opportunity to discover more about everything from tides and water makers to navigation and, most importantly, mental health.
Over the coming 22 months, we want to learn as much as possible about mental health and open up dialogues to engage with others. We hope that through the ripple effect, we can start a movement for better mental health, for everyone.
We are so excited to have launched our campaign and are truly grateful for all the support shown as we embark on this extraordinary journey 🙌
Molly, Dayna + Lou
