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. You can track the progress of this year’s race on our racetracker viewer
