Rowing the Atlantic – A Talk By James Kyall
Find out how a team containing military amputees completed 3,000 mile journey
The Chiswick RNLI branch is inviting you to a fascinating talk by James Kyall "Rowing the Atlantic" that will take place on 25 October at 7.30pm at the George IV Pub in Chiswick.
In 2011, James Kayll led a crew in a record rowing attempt across the Indian Ocean. They completed the 3,500 mile journey in 75 days. In 2013 James returned to the oars, this time to lead a team of military amputees in a rowing race across the Atlantic. Five crew were recruited and despite missing three legs and a hand, against the elements and after surviving a catastrophic capsize, the soldiers completed the 3,000 miles in a respectable 48 days, finishing third.
Through photo and film James will share his story from the Atlantic, talking about some of the pains and pleasures of ocean rowing.
Tickets are £10 (plus booking fee) and can be purchased online.
Limited tickets will be available on the door for £12. All proceeds go to the RNLI.
