TALK: “Ocean Escapades: A Couple Crossing an Ocean”  Rosalind Chaston & Andy Hodgson

Andy and Rosalind are an ocean rowing couple who have weathered all kinds of storms and come out the other side stronger.

In 2018, Andy became the first person to row solo around Britain and spent 174 days alone at sea. On his return, he met Rosalind and they decided to team up for the next expedition. 3 years of preparation led them to the start line of their Atlantic Row. They rowed alone out into the night and didn’t see land again for 46 days on the other side of the Atlantic.

13:00 – 13:30

TALK: An Audacious Voyage – Conrad Humphreys

Conrad Humphreys is a triple round the world yachtsman, who became the 5th British sailor in history to complete the legendary Vendee Globe. In his most recent adventure, using traditional navigation equipment and surviving off the same meager rations as Captain Bligh, Conrad and a cast of nine were cast adrift in this tiny open boat. Their mission, to survive and safely navigate across 4000 miles of open ocean to recreate one of the greatest survival stories in British history.

15:00 – 15:30

TALK: “The first ever around the world by scooter and sidecar”  Matt Bishop and Reece Gilkes – The Sidecar Guys

Ever imagined what it would be like traveling across 10 time zones, in blizzard-like conditions at temperatures as low as -45*C on a city commuter scooter and barn-built sidecar? Or perhaps breaking down in the Sahara desert with zero mechanical expertise only to finally discover what a bearing is? Matt Bishop and Reece Gilkes are The Sidecar Guys. They’re known as The Sidecar Guys because they hold the very niche Guinness World Record for the longest-ever journey by scooter and sidecar and are the first people to circumnavigate the planet on a scooter with a sidecar.
