Solo ocean rower to raise money for NSPCC

On 6th December Hampshire-based rower James Ketchell will embark on a solo crossing in the Atlantic Rowing Race in aid of the NSPCC.

Speedo, the swimwear brand,  is announced as sponsors for his Atlantic adventure.  James will leave port in his boat fondly named Speedo and will embark on the 3,000 mile adventure alone and unaided. Ketchell is attempting one of the most difficult tests of human endurance in aid of the NSPCC- a charity close to his heart.

Speedo will be documenting Ketchell’s journey across the Atlantic with blogs and live web casts from the boat on their website – so stay tuned for updates on the Atlantic adventurer.

Everyone at Speedo wishes James the best of luck on his challenge and look forward to welcoming him back to dry land in mid February.
