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...
welcome aboard!

A New Beginning.

It is a great pleasure to announce ALLIANCE TRUST as the headline sponsor for my NY2SY Solo North Atlantic Row!       I would like to welcome ALLIANCE TRUST  http://www.alliancetrust.co.uk/ to the adventure and I am very happy to name my ocean rowing boat after the company. They have shown a strong interest, not only in the actual row, but also my reasons for undertaking it and my support for the Scottish Association for Mental Health (SAMH). I am very lucky to have such fantastic sponsors for NY2SY and I am very much looking forward to working with ALLIANCE TRUST over the coming months.   It has taken almost 4 years to get to this point, which in reality is only really the beginning. I could not have done it without the amazing and inspiring support of so many people. I am so happy that I can begin to repay everyone's belief in what I am trying to do by finally undertaking this challenge.  I'd like to extend a warm welcome to those of you who are visiting this website for the first time…
