NOMAN: Surviving at Sea

*9 days until the race*

Good day to you dear reader! No posts from me since July 1st because I’ve been throwing myself at last minute admin for the row – last minute purchases, organising my pre-race party, writing e-mails and on and on. It seems no matter how organised I am or how organised I feel something popped up almost every day last week!

So, yesterday I did my final course to prepare me for going to sea. In the past 40 days I have learned a lot about ocean rowing and nautical safety but yesterday’s course was by far the most fun! I tested out my new waterproof camera, here are some pictures:

In 9 days I arrive in Ibiza to begin my final mental preparation for racing 200 miles, non-stop, from there to Barcelona. It might take 2 days (unlikely!), it could take 4. All I know is that in 12 days I’ll be out on the Mediterranean Sea and rowing hard in the sun and having a laugh to cover the fear and physical exertions!

I’m doing this in aid of NOMAN is an Island: Race to End HPV and I would really appreciate it if you could donate a dollar or a pound by visiting my page! 41 days ago I had absolutely no idea I’d be doing this. I have covered all the cost of training, flights, accommodation and all the other hidden bits that pop up – every penny you donate will go to NOMAN and will help to promote the use of the HPV vaccine globally and universally, thus ending 5% of all cancers!

NOMAN raises awareness about the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) related cancer epidemic in men and women, and campaigns for universal HPV vaccination, while challenging participants to extreme endurance races across the world.
