In 2019 Charlie Martell will attempt a Guinness World Record feat – to be the first person in history to row solo and unsupported across the North Pacific Ocean, from Japan to the USA, land to land.

The enormity of this endeavour embodies the spirit of ‘challenge’, to face such a vast and unforgiving seascape, alone. It will encourage many individuals never to give up on their sporting dream, and will raise awareness for four very worthy charities; Give Them a Sporting Chance, Veterans In Action, the Allied Forces Foundation and the VC Gallery.

I am delighted to be involved as the Guardian of Row Pacific 2019; this voyage will enrich the lives, not only of the charities Charlie and Team HESCO are working with, but also the lives of those that follow this adventure. I wish Charlie every success.
