Most people are surprised to find out that most people who take part in our BARCELONA – IBIZA races had no rowing experience before deciding to row an ocean. The boats are far more stable and technique is less important than for crew boats which are much thinner. Anyone can jump in one and row it, but those with better technique or who are stronger will make the boat go faster. But rowing for days on end takes determination and the ability to look after yourself during your time on the water.

Each member of each crew will be completing the following courses:

  1. RYA VHF Radio course – Correct use of VHF radio
  2. RYA First Aid at Sea – First aid to take care of knocks and bumps at sea
  3. RYA Sea Survival – Detailed knowledge and practical competence in sea survival techniques and equipment.
  4. RYA Essential Navigation and Seamanship – Teaching you about boat handling and navigation
