CCube Solutions is sponsoring two junior doctors who will be rowing some 3,600 miles from south west Australia to the Maldives - all for charity
On Thursday 16th March 2017, Doctors Ted Welman and Jack Faulkner left from Geraldton in Western Australia on their 84 day expedition to Port Louis, Mauritius. The boys will spend nearly 3 months at sea as they burn 8000 calories per day rowing in 2 hour shifts, 24 hours a day for the duration of the crossing. This gruelling schedule will see them battle sleep deprivation, hurricane force winds and 50 ft. waves! In doing so, they hope to raise £100,000 for Médecins Sans Frontières, a global medical charity which provides much needed emergency medical care in areas affected by conflict, epidemics or natural disasters. MSF was founded in 1971 on the belief that all people have the right to medical care regardless of gender, race, religion, creed or political affiliation, and that the needs of these people outweigh respect for national boundaries. MSF has since opened offices in 28 countries and employs more than 30,000 people across the world. Since its foundation, MSF has treated over a hundred million patients.
Ocean rowing remains one of the toughest endurance tests known to man, nearly 4000 people have climbed Mount Everest, 536 have been into space yet only 20 rowing boats have crossed the Indian Ocean and only four were pairs!
