Heart of the Warrior achieves it 4th Atlantic Ocean Crossing
James & Sam were on board "Heart of the Warrior", nicknamed HOT W and have made a crossing time of 85 days 5 hours and 4 minutes.
James & Sam were raising money for their local radio stations' charity "Cash for Kids" and made regular interviews with the Radio Station along their journey. Their other chosen charity was St Barbabus Hospice/Chesnut Tree Childrens Hospice.
James signed up in April 2009, just 9 months prior to race start. He lost his orginal rowing partner and recruited Sam just 1 month prior to race start. The pair pulled together, rallied round and got to the start line without even their rowlocks in place! With the dedictaion and motivation needed by an Ocean Rower, James & Sam pulled out all the stops to get to the start line - acheiving it perfectly!
The boat HOTW (then Jaydubyoo) was raced accross the Atlantic in 2007 buy brothers Andrew & Jo Jordan-White, and can now put its name to 4 Atlantic Crossings.
Well done to James & Sam!!!
