One of the great stories that I have the privilege of helping to tell right now is that of Sarah Weldon’s “Great British Viking Quest”. We do this together in the weekly Oceans Project podcast.
In a nutshell, Sarah had hoped to row across the Pacific Ocean later this year. First as part of a four, then (after a crew shake up) as part of a pair. Sadly, when her remaining crew mate also left the project, she had to abandon it.
Now she plans to be the first person to row solo around Britain.
At the moment, the project is on a knife edge. The finances involved in such an endeavour are considerable and an important deadline is approaching. She needs to make a £7,500 deposit on the boat by the end of next week.
But before I give everything away though, why not listen to the latest episode of the podcast?
