My story

Totally OARdacious is one woman’s mission to raise awareness and funds for 3 amazing charities through a unique challenge to SOLO row both the Atlantic and to circumnavigate GB. Both of these rows will be solo and I will be aiming for Guinness World Records in both events being the OLDEST SOLO FEMALE to row an OCEAN and the ONLY SOLO FEMALE to row around GB – the big question of course, is WHICH is TOUGHEST?

To put it in perspective, more people have been to SPACE than have rowed an ocean solo, to date just 25 WOMEN have SOLO rowed ANY ocean.

Rowing the Atlantic will be tough enough, likely taking somewhere between 55-105 days.
Rowing around GB will be a challenge on a whole other level, likely taking 150-200 days.

Why not join in this adventure by following me at or on social media, just search for Totally OARdacious on Instagram, Facebook and YouTube and you will find us. We aim to raise £300,000 to be split equally between these three amazing charities.

Why are these charities important to me?
Having lost a mother to cancer and a father to suicide, perhaps you can understand why two of these three charities are causes very close to my heart and the excellent work they both do in the communities is extraordinary. Equally, there is a real power I have discovered from adventure and the Youth Adventure Trust are a sparkling success story in getting young people into nature to learn skills around resilience and mental fitness, giving them skills for life.

Thank you SO MUCH for your support

3rd row of the day - and there concludes 75 hours of training - 21 mins to get into the boatyard, there is a knack to getting into this boatyard with an ocean row boat and today I nailed it 👏 now all I need to do is go into the water to get the rudder out

2nd row of the day - 1hr 8 mins, under the bridges - pouring with rain, battling the winds to get into Holes Bay before the winds get stronger later today. Escaped to a mooring when it became torrential 🚣‍♀️🤣😜😅

1st row of the day - 1 hr 52 mins - a late start due to a mooring error that I needed to rectify 🙈🫣 Learning every day! 👍😊🚣‍♀️❤️ raining too, bizarrely nice to row in the rain.

6th and last row of the day and by far the most scary - rowing in the dark in open seas is great, rowing in the dark in a harbour is … well let’s just say I need a cup of tea to recover 🙈😜🫣🚣‍♀️ I make that about 12 hours for today. I’m happy with that. 😎❤
