During the summer of 2021, Mark Delstanche will attempt to row solo and
unsupported from New York to London and if successful, will be the first person in
human history to have done so.
Departure is scheduled for May 2021 from the Statue of Liberty after which Mark will head out in to the Atlantic to take on the greatest challenge of his life, facing everything that the North Atlantic has to throw at him until finally reaching his destination, passing under Tower Bridge in the late summer.
Whilst at sea, Mark will not only face the physical challenge of rowing in huge seas for many hours every day and the ever present risk of being capsized but also face the psychological battles that come with isolation in adverse conditions.
By the end, Mark hopes to have raised £50,000 for his chosen charities.
