Not just a trip around the bay

From Mike Rosewell.

A Southampton marine salesman and a Romsey fish farmer are also aiming to be in the Atlantic Row lineup. Richard Duckworth, 27, of Southampton and Mark Stollery, 36, of Romsey met as a result of their mutual interest in rowing, Mark being a member of Southampton Rowing Club and Richard of Coal Porters Rowing Club.

Both are well into the organisational aspects and the long programme of stamina training. Expecting their effort to take between 50 and 70 days, Mark says,

'We will be asking questions of ourselves leading up to and during the race, not least about spending two months together in an area smaller than most people's bathroom.'
Both will be aiming to raise money for the Wessex Cancer Trust, Mark having lost his father to the disease two years ago while Richard lost his mother to cancer three years ago.
