Published 00:00 on 1 Mar 2022

We have now had it confirmed that a Laura Barrigan a member of the World Record Breaking mixed Army Rowing team Force Atlantic 21 will visit the club on the evening of the 7th April to give a talk about their incredible achievement.

The team completed the 3000 mile Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, from La Gomera in the Canary Islands to Antigua at the end of January this year. They managed to complete the race in the incredible time of 40 days 23 hours and 57 minutes in a 8.5m long rowing boat, setting a new world record time for a mixed crew.

This is a great opportunity to hear first-hand about the planning, training and both the physical and mental challenges they faced whilst completing such a gruelling race.

A talk that promises to be both extremely interesting and fascinating and certainly not one you should miss.

The bar will open at 18:00 with the talk commencing at 19:15. This event will again be followed by an American Supper.
