At the 2023 Tour of Pembrokeshire we’re going to be joined by Sophie 30, Polly 48 and Janine 68 and together they are Team Cruising Free.

Here’s what the team had to say.

“We are 3 rowers from Neyland Rowing club, Pembrokeshire who are going to row 3,200 miles unsupported across the Atlantic in 2025.

We are striving to showcase values that we believe in- hope, courage and tenacity- whilst raising substantial funds for our two chosen charities, the Cystic Fibrosis Trust and Paul Sartori Hospice at Home. We are passionate about inspiring women to take part in extreme sports, especially those who are older and those living with chronic health conditions and disability. 
In addition we are aiming to collect at least 2 World Records; Sophie will be the first person with Cystic Fibrosis, and Janine will be the oldest woman to row an ocean.
We have a long way to go before we even reach the start line in January 2025; we have £150,000 to raise, a boat to buy, rowing training to do (constantly!) and many, many new skills to learn, as well as raising as much money as we can for our two charities.”
The Tour of Pembrokeshire is very proud to support Sophie, Polly and Janine with their challenge and we wish them the best of luck with their row. Keeping everything crossed!
