The rowers were all women aged between 45 and 51 - Niki Doeg, Helen Butters, Frances Davies, and skipper Janette Benaddi pictured below on the far left.
The name of the boat? "Yorkshire Rows" and where are these four brave women from? Yorkshire of course!
I know that some of you out there are dismissive of feats like this, thinking - What's the point? But I salute these four women and am in awe of their courage - not only in achieving their goal but in doggedly organising the adventure with sponsorship, simply getting the boat built, media coverage and back-up support etc.. None of this can have been easy. Bravo indeed!
