Rough water

Rough water

There is something, almost primal, about watching a rowing boat, powered simply with hearts and minds, harness the energy of the seemingly relentless sea.

This weekend I was invited to join Atlantic Discovery for their second two-day training session.  I was honoured to meet Ellida for the first time, the most important member of the team.  She is a beauty; with long clean lines, grace and strength, and a backbone of experience:  2018/19 will be her fifth Atlantic crossing.
