Dom Mee, seasoned British adventurer:
‘GB Row 2018 represents the ultimate rowing challenge for competitors. The treacherous British coastline demands the very best in team work and technical navigation ability. A bad decision can put a team on the rocks losing everything. A good decision can take a team miles ahead of the fleet but in the complex weather and currents of the UK coastal area positions can change on a daily basis. Only the best will make it to the finish. Only the extraordinary will win. Forget the Americas Cup this is a modern day Viking challenge that will push men and women to breaking point both mentally and physically in their quest to be crowned the champion’.

A Piece of History
The route navigated by the record breaking 2005 team led by Will de Laszlo has been plotted in full detail on a maritime chart. A high resolution copy of this was one of the resources for teams entering GB Row 2013, so that rowers in the 2013 event will be armed with valuable information from the 2005 event to help them plan their own routes. We’ll also be using it during the race to see how the 2013 crews are faring against the pace set by the 2005 World Record holders.
