My last outing in Henley on April 9th was for once a sunny one. In fact it was the first time I have been rowing there when the sun has been shinning. Every other time it has been chucking it down. So it made for a very pleasant session on the water with Toby.
It was a bit of a trip to get there, having to go via Chester(the other end of the country)but an enjoyable one. In the midst of training etc I may have neglected to mention that I was also in a play. My last session at Leander fell just a week before our opening night which wasn’t ideal but it did give me lots of time on trains to learn my lines! Lol. You will be glad to know it all went well on the nights. Full houses every night with standing ovations each night! So I was delighted. I have the bug for this acting thing again now.

I have spoken a lot about the training side of my challenge which is hugely important. The nice thing about training is that it is down to me and within my control. I work as hard as I can at it and I know that all that work pays off in the form of fitness and technique. The other side to this challenge is the search for sponsorship. For anyone who has ever had to look for sponsors for a project I don’t need to tell you how soul-destroying it can be. But it is an integral part of this whole challenge. Continue reading »
Having had a wet but very beneficial session in Leander, I attempted to put all of the things I had worked on with Toby together. This time however they would be made a little more difficult for me in that I would be trying to do them in a scull. Continue reading »
In 2011 I am aiming to become the first Irish person to row solo across the Indian Ocean. Although this challenge is vastly different from everyday life for me, I believe I have the determination and sheer single mindedness to achieve my goal of becoming the first Irish person to row across the Indian Ocean, not only that but I will also be the first Irish person to attempt it solo. My other interests include snow boarding, playing guitar (badly), drama, flying and generally keeping fit.

- Solo in a boat?
I may have been solo in a boat but by no means was, this a challenge I undertook all by myself. So many people have helped me along the way so I just want to use this space to say thank you to those people individually. Firstly my sponsors, When I set out to do [...]Continue reading »
- Do you require assistance?
Fujisuka fujisuka fujisuka …this is ocean rowing boat… So after two capsizes can your day get any worse. I thought not, but I was about to be surprised. It’s funny now but at the time I felt almost calmer at sea having being capsized twice. I knew what it was like now and better still [...]Continue reading »
