More from afar…

CRAB members travelled on from Paris to Jersey to assist Standard Chartered Bank to complete a challenge. They were set to bike twice round the island on day one, row round on day 2 and do the Jersey marathon on day 3. Ummm!

This time rowing was in a couple of adventure gigs ( Cornish Pilot Gigs modified by AdventureRowing in Langstone for this sort of thing) – hence the spoon-blade oars being held aloft before leaving St Hellier harbour:


34 miles and 6 hrs 39 mins later the first boat crossed the line; 6 mins later the second boat finished:

Conclusion of the day, adventure gigs have the world’s hardest seats!
