On 5th July 2021 Bella Collins, Purusha Gordon, Lily Lower, Mary Sutherland rowed their way into the record books as the Fastest Four Women to row unsupported 2,700 miles from San Francisco to Hawaii by completing the challenge in 35 Days, 14 hours and 32 minutes.
Introducing the faces behind the campaign
Bella is more comfortable on water than land, as proven by her previous row across the Atlantic. An avid sailor and surfer, she is constantly pushing herself to learn and grow in all aspects of life.
Mary is the salty sea girl that every ocean rowing team needs - she's already got 3 world records. She can often be found on the water and is a keen sailer, racing anything that floats.
``P`` is passionate about health and well-being, she is the team's ``boat mum`` and in charge of keeping us fed and watered. She's happiest when outside with her 2 children, on the water or running with her beloved dog Treacle.
Having started sailing at the age of 8, Lily has competed in three RORC Fastnet Races and a transatlantic race. Lily is hugely passionate about sustainability and leading the charge on this front.

What we'll Endure
The physical and mental endurance
Sleep deprivation, fatigue, salt sores, extreme weather and equipment failure all while living in a confined space, just to name a few…
Our daily routine
We’ll be rowing 2 hours on, 2 hours off non-stop (24/7) alongside maintaining our equipment, cleaning the boat, navigation and looking after our bodies.
How Far is 2700 miles?
To put it in perspective
If you walk 10,000 steps a day, it would take you around 500 days to cover this distance. We’re aiming to row it in less than 50.
Inspiring positive change through our values
By encouraging a positive mindset and mindful lifestyle choices for a better world.
Creating a community that cares
By showing how the power of human connection can improve mental health and well-being.
For the Planet
Educating ourselves & those around us
Being authentic and honest in our sustainable journey both for our campaign and in personal lives
