After a week of steady recuperation and training, I felt much more prepared to tackle the Sark to Jersey Offshore Rowing race than my previous outing for the GRC Clameur Challenge. I had company on this voyage. Jon Sexton had kindly agreed that ‘Mogul Duster’ would act as my guard boat for the event with […]
After the events were finished, I spent a few extra days exploring Latvia before hitting the return journey to Guernsey.
