I'm taking on The Great Row to raise funds for Cancer Research UK's life-saving work.

In memory of

Everyone who has been affected by cancer

In February 2019 I'm joining Cancer Research's Great Row challenge by rowing a marathon on an indoor machine over the course of the month.

A number of staff from the RYA's Racing department are taking part in memory of Martin Boatman, a much-loved and valued coach who died far too young. As well as Martin's death, cancer has affected and continues to affect far too many people close to me.

Devastatingly, one in two people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. But advances in science have put cures within our grasp. Please support me by sponsoring me.

Slight blip... woke up on Saturday unable to put socks on thanks to an old back injury rearing its ugly head. I'm on 17 miles so far, but today marks the first time I've slipped behind. I'm on the painkillers and will be back on the rower before the month's out to finish it.
