An attempt to break the record for rowing around Great Britain
and raise money for SUPPORT OUR PARAS

Just Giving

I am a former Paratrooper and will turn 50 in 2025 and to ‘celebrate’ I will attempt to break the record for rowing around Great Britain. The Parachute Regiment motto is ‘Ready for Anything’ and this rowing challenge takes inspiration from former Paratroopers John Ridgway and Chay Blyth who set the record for crossing the Atlantic in a rowing boat in 1966.

Half a lifetime ago, as a 25-year-old Parachute Regiment platoon commander, I was wounded in action during a hostage rescue in Sierra Leone but made a full recovery and subsequently commanded 1PARA machine guns platoon during the invasion of Iraq. Not all my former brothers in arms were so fortunate - and that’s why I’m looking to you to help me raise funds for SUPPORT OUR PARAS.

This challenge will require me to draw upon all the experience I’ve gained in the military and in the years since and also learn plenty of new skills in order to deal with everything that the notoriously difficult British in-shore waters will throw at me.

I intend to get around safely (and fast) and raise as much as possible for SUPPORT OUR PARAS.
