We are two women on a mission to see just how far we can push ourselves while supporting two incredible charities.
Victoria has been involved in rowing since she was 10 when she was first thrown into a single scull during summer holidays in Ireland. Being the 5th generation of rower in her family she didn't really have a choice! Having competed at the GB National Championships, major Head races and qualifying for Henley Women's regatta several times, she is no stranger to competitive rowing....although over a slightly shorter distance than the Atlantic!
Saf learned to row in 2007 but her rowing aspirations were put on hold when she started at Sandhurst followed by a tour in Afghanistan. Saf came back to rowing in 2018 when she joined Vesta, coached by Victoria. Her 12 years serving in the British Army brings a wealth of organisational and leadership skills to the crew.
In December 2020 we will be competing in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge and so GB Row will be a fantastic warm up event for us! We can’t wait to test out our boat and get some real experience out on the water for days at a time.
Believers in the power of sport to transform body and mind, we have chosen to support the Youth Sport Trust and London Youth Rowing who work to promoting the importance of sport in the development of young people. Throughout 2020 we will be undertaking various challenges and fundraising initiatives to reach our goal of raising £50,000 for these two fantastic charities.
With Victoria's rowing background and Saf's military expertise, we think we are a formidable pairing!
