When you set yourself a challenge of rowing the Atlantic Ocean having never rowed professionally before, you know you’ll need to put hundreds of hours of training in just to get to the start line.
This month Fortitude IV are taking that training on the road as team sponsors Pinsent Masons host a 12-hour charity row at their London offices.
The event will give the team a chance to improve their endurance and resilience, as they begin to increase their rowing distance – something which will be crucial when they set off to row 3,000 miles non-stop across the Atlantic Ocean. With all donations from the challenge being given to West London Zone, a charity that helps improve the lives of local children, the charity row will also be a great opportunity to drive much-needed donations.
12-hour charity row
The rowing session will take place on Thursday 9th May, from 7am until 7pm at legal specialist Pinsent Masons’ offices at Crown Place, London.
