Row the Indian Ocean Live Broadcasts
Row The Indian Ocean
Row the Indian Ocean will see four courageous men – one of whom has been diagnosed with Young Onset Parkinson’s Disease – row 3,600 nautical miles across the Indian Ocean to raise awareness of, and money for three charities – Parkinson’s UK, Clear Trust and RAFT.
The row will be non-stop and unassisted in an attempt to break the current world record. The crew will take it in turns to row two hours on, two hours off, day and night. They have a three-month supply of freeze-dried food packages and a desalinator that turns sea water into drinking water. Fewer than 20 crews have successfully completed the crossing and there have been many more failed attempts.
During their incredible trip, the crew will talk about some of the challenges and dangers they face, as well as encourage the kids to get interested and inspired in topics such as oceanography, geography, meteorology, marine life and conservation.
