A statement from Arthur below:
"Exe Endurow is an ocean rowing team of 4 students attempting to row non-stop, unsupported around Great Britain. Our aim is to become the youngest team to circumnavigate GB, starting and finishing from Tower Bridge. We will be raising money for Just One Ocean, a charity working tirelessly to alleviate plastic pollution in our oceans, and the British Red Cross in their COVID-19 Response. We will also be conducting the first microplastics survey around the entire UK coastline to aid vital research into the health of our oceans.
We as a team wanted to do this challenge because we all share a passion for the outdoors, fitness and the oceans. Two members of the team enjoy mountaineering in Scotland and the Alps, while the other two are experienced sailors which will be invaluable maritime knowledge for us.
The challenge will be a real test of endurance, rowing 2000 miles against some of the strongest tides in the world. We have been preparing for the expedition for the past year alongside our University degrees. We will be living in a very tough and grueling environment but we are confident we can cope with nutrition and supplements we have from the KMC. We Chose KMC because we loved the pride that they take in being a quality British sports nutrition brand and we felt that this aligned perfectly with our own passion to circumnavigate Great Britain."
