About

This Girl Rows In 2022 I will be rowing solo 3000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean as part of the Talisker Whisky Atlantic challenge also I hope to break the world record for the fastest solo female- more people have climbed Mt. Everest than have rowed across the Atlantic! Less than 20 women have ever completed this epic challenge. The Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge is the premier event in ocean rowing – A challenge that will take me more than 3000 Miles west from San Sebastian in La Gomera, Canary Islands (28oN 18oW) to Nelson’s Dockyard English Harbour, Antigua & Barbuda (17oN 61oW).   I will be rowing for up to 18 hours a day, in temperatures in excess of 30 degrees and 30ft waves- The Waves in the Atlantic can be big, really big. This may be ok in a larger ocean-going vessel but in a small 20ft rowing boat it can lead to being capsized. thisgirlrows.com

Because I want to live in a world where every child, especially every girl, knows their value - and the communities they’re growing up in – and the world around them -values them too.

Our Only World

Their mission is to inspire and raise awareness of the fight against marine plastic pollution and its effect on our only world. Their first project is the manufacture of a water refill station using a local supply chain and recycled fishing nets collected off Cornish beaches, this makes it a low carbon footprint initiative supporting the circular economy. We are a not for profit registered charity and all proceeds are used to fund marine conservation. They have been awarded funding from Cornwall Council to site 15 units along the Cornish coastline from Penzance to Saltash. They have started work and are collaborating with communities about installation!
