Cross Channel fundraising team seek a cox!
This is the story of four fellows and their bid to row the English Channel to raise vital funds or the good work of Cancer Research UK. The interesting bit? Though they'd never met before July 2011 and had never rowed before August 2011, they've trained hard and plan to raise at least £10,000 for the life saving work Cancer Research UK.
These guys are now looking for a committed and experienced cox to join the team for the big row in September... can you help?
Date: Last week of September
Rowing club overseeing challenge: Dover Rowing club
Route: Dover to Calais
Training: Our main base of training is at Lea Rowing Club in London (http://learc.org.uk/), but we try and go down to Shoreham rowing club, near Brighton (http://www.shorehamrowingclub.co.uk/) once a month to row at sea. We will need to go to Dover to familiarise ourselves with the craft and do a 3 hour competency and fitness test prior to the Challenge.
