Final training session, and a 15 mile round trip…

The Channel Four with 'Deborah' - the gig used by the Sport Relief crew for their Channel Crossing this year.

On Sunday 1st April, we completed our longest row to date, as part of our final training session.┬áIn the same boat used by John Bishop and the Sport Relief crew, we rowed 15 miles around Hayling Island in a little over 3 hours – giving us a good feel for the open water ‘endurance’ element of the challenge.

In the final three weeks we’re now focused on nutrition and stamina training in preparation for the crossing on 21st April, and working with our escort team (Michael Oram) to keep an eye on the long range weather forecast. We’ve been reassured by Mike that we won’t start the crossing if the wind is any higher than gale force 5!
