Our team of 6 novice rowers raced 26 miles against 15 other teams, finishing just minutes after the British Rowing team.
The All at (O) Sea team of Emma Finlayson, Jake Turcan, Sarah Mitchell, Seamus McKimm, Stuart Miller and Oli Woods pushed themselves to their limits as they raced to finish the marathon.
It truly was an epic effort, with Stuart spectacularly hitting a wall in the closing stages, Sarah valiantly pushing on despite being unable to stand and Jake putting in a mammoth performance in the face of his sponsors' comments about his stature.
We trainined hard, up at 6am to build our endurance before work, in true rowing style. Some members of the team had never even used a rowing machine before!
