The Row2Recovery crew will speak at the Royal Geographical Society on June 6th 2012. Tickets are priced at £25 each, please register at http://row2recoveryrgs.eventbrite.com The talk will cover: The reasons why they took on the extraordinary challenge of rowing the Atlantic with a crew which included four seriously injured soldiers How the injured crew were chosen How they coped with adversity, including broken autohelm, broken desalinator and broken rudder and being adrift for a week with dwindling water supplies during the crossing How the funds raised during the campaign will be distributed to help those injured in conflict Reflections on leadership and motivation. There will also be a Question and Answer session and drinks will be available before and after the address.
The talk will be an informative but sometimes light hearted account of the Row2Recovery crossing of the Atlantic in December and January, with a perspective on the crew's personal combat/injury experiences that led them to undertake the endeavour. The crew will describe what life was like on board, the nature of the challenge, and the many mishaps and equipment failures they faced en route, many of which were covered in the national press The story will be put into the context of the row - to support, and remember the wounded and their families, and to inspire the injured and disabled, proving that there is life beyond injury.
Tickets are priced at just £25 with registration at http://row2recoveryrgs.eventbrite.com and all proceeds will go to the charity, which is raising money for Help For Heroes, ABF The Soldiers Charity and SSAFA Forces Help.
