Seven day row event will kick off on April 27 and aims to raise £50,000 for industry charity.
The Light Fund London to Paris Row 2019 is swiftly taking shape, with the fundraising event due to kick off on Saturday, April 27 at London’s Tower Bridge.
The aim is to cover seven consecutive days of rowing, with the plan to arrive in Paris on May 4 (although this is weather dependent), raising £50,000 for The Light Fund.
The trip will be broken down into three sections: Tower Bridge to Ramsgate (c. 16 hours of continual rowing); Ramsgate to Le Havre (two days); and Le Havre to the Eiffel Tower (four days).
There will be seven people in the boat at any one time – six rowers and one cox – with five on the support boat, with the plan to switch crews around every two hours.
The event is being organised by Rob Corney, group md of Bulldog Licensing, who told The Source that crew numbers are looking healthy, although there are a couple of remaining spaces for would-be crew members.
