All-girl team set to row round Britain

The first all-female team will attempt to row 2000 miles around the coast of Britain

Four women are attempting to set a world record by becoming the first all-female team to row around Britain.

The four women, nicknamed the ‘SeaGals‘, are taking part in the inaugural GB Row Challenge 2010 to raise money for the Help for Heroes charity.

The team includes Angela Madsen, who already holds Guinness world records for being the first woman to row across the Indian Ocean and the first disabled woman to row across two oceans, and Amy Green, a member of the first all-woman team to row from London to Paris in 2008.

The SeaGals will use a specially-designed ocean rowing boat to tackle the 2000-mile journey through the English Channel, the North and Irish seas and the North Atlantic Ocean.
Expedition leader, Belinda Kirk, said, “This is a unique and testing challenge and we really need financial support to give us the best possible chance of success. 

“We will be completely unaided throughout the race, which means there won’t be any back-up boats or assistance with navigation during the month-long expedition.”

The team is selling tickets at £150 each for a lottery-style draw where the winner will have their company logo splashed across the SeaGals’ 24ft rowing boat and oars.
