Rowing the North Sea

Mike's epic challenge for SSAFA

Mike Tierney

Mike rowed 180 miles across the North Sea to Holland in a boat called Bonnie Lass, in memory of his sister Clare.

 

DO SOMETHING INSPIRING, DO SOMETHING THAT CHALLENGES YOU...

 “She was really funny and inspiring, and I wanted to mark her passing in some extraordinary way. I thought of something unique and challenging for me.  Not having rowed before, I thought that might be something I’d like to do. Rowing continuously in heavy weather was much harder than I ever envisaged! But we raised about £4,000 for SSAFA."
