Coxless Crew

Coxless Crew – remarkable challenge

The Pacific Ocean is larger than all of the land on earth combined! That’s something to consider, especially when thinking about the women who’re crossing it as we speak.

The women are attempting to be the first female 4’s team to row unsupported across the Pacific Ocean, from America to Australia. This will involve spending two hours on the oars, and two hours off, for six months –  in a pink boat named ‘Doris’. The Coxless Crew have taken on this remarkable challenge in aid of Breast Cancer Care and Walking With the Wounded.

Fearless rowers refuse to be defeated

The women are currently rowing through the doldrums en route to their second stop off point, Samoa, and things are getting incredibly difficult for them. Battling against the Pacific winds means that they are now behind their planned schedule and it is looking like they will spend Christmas and New Year on board, arriving in Cairns in early January.

‘We want to empower others to have faith and dig deep to fight and overcome whatever adversity life throws your way. I believe you can do anything you set your mind to.’

At some point in life, we all face our own Pacific – something challenging in life, a defining moment. The Coxless Crew want to hear about your #MyPacific stories on Twitter.
