We are four women in our thirties rowing a tiny eco boat 3000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean. We represent the dreamers, the adventurers, the go-getters, the passionate, the determined and the curious. But most of all, we are four ordinary women taking on an extraordinary adventure. We are Jen, Emily, JP and Erin. We are One Ocean Crew.
Our story is unique as we found each other in lockdown 1.0, in the middle of a global pandemic (virtually). Three members have never rowed before and our Skipper is scared of deep water. You couldn’t write this. But what we are setting out to achieve, to be the first female crew to row across the finish line of the 2021 Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, is really the adventure of a lifetime. Facing seasickness, sleep deprivation and 20ft high waves, we need to lace our hearts with resilience in bucket loads. And most importantly, we need you on our team.
We want to inspire women world-wide to follow their dreams, to create opportunities and to achieve their potential. We want you to feel empowered to fight for what you love.
I mean, if we can row across the Atlantic Ocean, surely anything is possible!
We are passionate ocean advocates, and our Atlantic row supports the campaign for a healthier ocean. We want to shout from the wave tops why we need to be making changes, reducing our impact on the planet, and promoting sustainable lifestyle choices.
In keeping with our core environmental aims and the UN Sustainable Development Goals, One Ocean Crew has chosen to row the world's first 'Eco' R45 ocean rowing boat. The boat’s sustainable design aims to have a reduced impact on the environment, with a foam core containing around 10,000 recycled plastic bottles and manufactured using renewable wind energy.
By taking on this huge feat of endurance, we are also raising money for the Sea Ranger Service, a social enterprise tackling youth unemployment and creating maritime careers focused on working for the environment.
