We are now training 4-5 times a week with endurance training at weekends (a 75 mile cycle ride and run planned this week), plus a final training session in the boat with our coach Mike Gilbert on 1st April.
Mike recently did a great job coxing the BBC Sport Relief crew of four rowers across the Channel in around 8 hours, proving the crossing can be done in this boat with a crew of four. It demands smooth, fast changes of position, minimal breaks, disciplined intake of food and drink and a high level of fitness.
Thank you for all your generosity so far, with Gift Aid we have raised over £1,300 in individual donations. As we enter the final month of training in preparation for our crossing at the end of April, we welcome your support at MyDonate.
