Following on from him record breaking double handed row across the North Pacific , Chris Martin has now dedicated himself to launching the Pacific Rowing Race 2014. The event operated by New Ocean Wave Ltd will start in Monterey bay, California and finish in Hawaii over 2100 nautical miles.
Using rugged purpose-built ocean rowing boats, governed by a set of event rules and a mandatory equipment list to ensure a safe and level playing field, teams will compete for the highest accolade – to be the first to reach the finish line in the quickest possible time. For some just completing the event is the challenge and we are committed to helping every crew equally to achieve a safe ocean passage.
Success in an event of this scale requires a combination of skills including teamwork, navigational know-how, weather and routing skills, physical ability and mental strength, together with an element of luck. With a mix of these skills, together with willpower and determination, anyone can achieve the unbelievable. We want you to be in one of those boats. You don’t have to be a rower to row an ocean, but you’ll need to learn how to. Make no mistakes, rowing an ocean is a serious mental and physical challenge but, with the right training to gain experience and knowledge, as well as our support on the water the risks can be managed, to make the amazing achievement of rowing an ocean, as safe as possible.
