Solo North Atlantic Row
Raising funds for the Scottish Association
For Mental Health (SAMH).
Welcome to the NY2SY website! This website will provide you with all the information you need about my NY2SY: Solo North Atlantic Row. I hope that you will take the time to explore these pages to find out more about my bid to row solo from the U.S.A. to Scotland, across the North Atlantic Ocean, and will help me with my efforts to raise as much money as possible for my chosen charity, SAMH.
The next few months are going to be very exciting as I prepare for, and then undertake, the biggest challenge of my life and I will try my best to share the experience with you. The thought of rowing solo across the open ocean thrills me, yet fills me with fear as well, and although I may be all alone in the boat, none of this will be possible without your support and generosity.
So, I hope that you will come with me as I embark on this epic adventure...

The documentary is still available to view on the BBCiPlayer until Sunday night (22/12/13) and I’d like to thank MOJA Ltd, BBC ALBA and MG ALBA for their support with the programme. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b03kp6yl Filming of my NY2SY project will continue and I hope the next documentary that is broadcast will be mostly about…Read More...
