About Celebrity Row

Some people drive it, others cycle it, and the very ambitious walk from John O’Groats to Land’s End. But nobody has ever been truly barmy enough to row a boat from the most north easterly tip of mainland Britain to the most south western point. Until now.

There are many reasons why such a journey by rowing boat could be considered a rash undertaking. There are the 1,097 miles of sea, river and canal for starters. There are the three weeks of a punishing schedule of row, eat, sleep, row again.

Who could be crazy enough to attempt such a feat? And why?

Step forward Lumbers’ Captain Dominic Gomersall and his merry crew: Olympic rower Gary Reid, Leicestershire businessman Ian Mattioli, Andy Lyon from PWC, and Paul Bassett from Lumbers. The crew will be completed by another Tigers star for the 2010 challenge.
