|Subject: Roz Savage Olympic Atlantic Row then down the Thames Mon May 07, 2012 9:54 pm|| |
Another epic row coming up by Roz and this time partnered by Andrew Morris..
The intrepid pair will row more than 2,000 miles, charting a course due east, heading for Bristol. Arriving on Britain’s west coast, in a unique and unusual last leg of their voyage, they will then continue rowing, navigating up the Bristol Channel, through the comparative safety of inland waterways including the Kennet and Avon Canal and the River Thames, and hope to arrive in London in early July, before the start of the Olympics.
They will be coming down the Thames so be great to go and give them a cheer, particularly when passing through the locks.
If anyone does not know who Roz is, she not only has single handed rowed across the oceans but is a tireless environmental campaigner and for us, a supporter of the Thames Tunnel and cleaning up the tidal tiverhttp://rivertac.org/2012/01/appalled-ocean-rower-backs-thames-supersewer/
