Route information
Row Around Great Britain:
The toughest rowing challenge in the world - over 2000 miles of unassisted rowing in the attempt to circumnavigate Great Britain. Rowers will have to face changeable winds, battle the sea's tidal flow and fast changing tides, and navigate shipping lanes and coastal weather conditions.
The Mens' World Record is held at 26 days, 9 hours and 9 minutes, by a crew of 4, set in GB Row 2013. The Ladies' World Record stands at 51 days, 16 hours & 42 minutes.
If you are looking for the ultimate physical and mental test, then this race is the one for you.
London 2 Land's End:
500 miles of complex tides and erratic British coastal weather await you in this 500 mile rowing race from Tower Bridge to Land's End. The race is the ultimate training opportunity for those looking to take part in any trans-atlantic races, or for those looking to get into ocean rowing for the first time. The average crew should complete the course in 7-10 days.

GB Row
GB Row is the ultimate rowing challenge. Complex tides and very changeable British weather mean good navigation skills are required, as well as the tactical ability to make the most of weather and sea conditions, which can be as important as a team’s strength, stamina and endurance. The race is organised by rowers who have been there themselves, meaning GB Row’s priority is to ensure teams have an enjoyable and safe race round the spectacular British coastline.
