RANNOCH R45. The fastest ocean rowing boat in the world.
Our boat is a Rannoch R45, the fastest ocean rowing boat in the world. She is 26ft long and weighs in at 1.4 tonnes (excluding oarsmen). There are 2 cabins (one at each end) each measuring around 6ft in length – leaving very little space for the 6ft 5in rowers in our team to catch some rest.
We have committed our savings into the purchase of the boat, with delivery in May 2019, to enable 6 months of intensive training prior to the race start. The boat will be sold after the race, with the proceeds going directly to the West London Zone Charity.
