Rowing to France

Dawn on the English Channel

Despite seasickness, boat troubles and unkind tides, we made it to France! At midnight on Friday Phil and I pulled out of Dover harbour to try to row across the English Channel in support of Help for Heroes.
15 hours, and many vomits later we made it! You can read my account here.
Any donations to help reach Phil’s £1million target would be warmly appreciated. Thank you.
