The Challenge

In June 2018, four British men plan to row their way into the record books by becoming the fastest four-man crew to row the Indian Ocean, while also conducting a research project that has the potential to redefine Parkinson’s disease and raise £200,000 for their chosen charities.

Help us get to the start line. 

This challenge has the potential to have a huge, positive impact for those who have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. To get to the starting line, the team are relying on the help of product and financial partners.

The Indian Ocean Row 2018 provides a fantastic opportunity for any organisation to boost its profile and reputation by aligning itself with an incredible cause and an important piece of research by Oxford Brookes University into Parkinson’s.

IOR schools project.

This is a great opportunity to encourage school children to take up exercise and be inspired by the world around them.

The crew will live-stream to schools around the country so children can chat to them about a whole host of topics including geography, oceanography, meteorology and marine life and conservation.  The boat will also be fitted with a tracker so the children can follow the crew’s progress online.

A world first! For the first time ever on an ocean rowing boat we will be live streaming on YouTube.

It will provide an opportunity for sponsors, friends, family and everyone else to check in with us and see what life is really like on board an ocean rowing boat. The equipment has been supplied by Marine Camera Solutions.

“The skipper Billy epitomises the modern-day adventurer. Not content with inspiring thousands during his record breaking Pacific Ocean Row in the inaugural Great Pacific Race, he has turned his attention to breaking the world speed record for rowing across the Indian Ocean, and in doing so, raising awareness of Young Onset Parkinson’s disease. With less than 50 people in the world having successfully rowed the Indian Ocean, Billy and the crew will be joining an elite list of adventurers, and I am delighted to support the Row the Indian Ocean 2018 crew in their landmark crossing.”
