In 2012 I rowed on board The Limited Intelligence, an ocean row boat which has successfully completed three ocean crossings.
Ours was a much shorter trip, about 6 days of rowing through the Florida Keys. We spent a day on the Atlantic during the duration of the trip and enjoyed the experiences, from battling storms at the start to encountering marine wildlife.
This gave me a taste for open ocean rowing and I would love to complete a longer journey in the future.

Raleigh has a long history of excellent work in the region - and across the world - and has a strong emphasis on the personal development of the volunteers, as well as providing opportunities for underprivileged young people from the UK to get involved.
