When most people think about a journey around Britain it’s unlikely that they would have been imagined doing it like this.
The GB Row is a rowing challenge during which crew’s race around Britain, a 2,000 mile (3,220km) journey. The race is born from a group of four 4 who endeavoured to set a world record by rowing nonstop around Britain. Since then it has become an annual challenge, with the 2013 edition set to be the most enticing yet.
The record for completing the course currently stands at 26 days, 21 hours and 14 minutes. For the 2013 edition, race organisers have offered £15,000 to the winners, and £100,000 to the crew that breaks the record.
Spending just under 27 days in a boat rowing 2,000 miles is well insane but it requires true Guts. The 6 crews that are endeavouring to undertake this challenge have my best wishes and the verdict is therefore a unanimous Guts!
