Sir Ranulph Fiennes: "Always during a journey into the unknown there are moments when we want to turn back, when we lose sight of our direction and even our purpose. These four young women are themselves heading off on a great adventure but their purpose is clear. They are preparing themselves for 6 months of being outside their comfort zone facing a huge mental and physical undertaking. The forces driving this courageous endeavor is their collaborative spirit and hope to inspire change. The Coxless Crew team have my full support and I wish them strength and success for their admirable challenge."    Sir Steve Redgrave: "The Coxless Crew, Wishing you all the best for this incredible, unique, world first challenge which you are about to embark in. I am sure there will be a lot of blood, sweat and tears along the way. I have no doubt what you are doing will inspire many to support the charities close to your hearts. Good luck to all of you."    Dee Caffari, MBE: "The Coxless Crew are a reminder to all of us what is achievable with some tenacity, determination and a little creative thinking. To put yourself far outside your comfort zone all for the good of supporting others is truly inspirational. I shall be following this team closely and wishing them the very best on this huge and incredible challenge."    Debra Searle, MBE, Solo Atlantic Row: "This journey will change your lives forever. You will witness scenes and emotions that others will struggle to fathom. It will be worth every bit of financial burden, hard work, stress and tears that will inevitably take place on your way to the start line. I wish you a following wind for every step and stroke of the way."    Mickey Bushell, MBE, London 2012 T53 100m Champion: "Words really can't describe the magnitude of what these ladies are going to undertake, 8,446 miles of the most unforgiving ocean on the planet, 6 months at sea in a cramped ocean rowing boat, just thinking about undertaking a voyage like that you would have to be pretty special, but these ladies are not just thinking about it they are doing it! I have had the pleasure of Knowing Laura Penhaul , through her job as lead physiotherapist for Paralympic GB. I suffered a shoulder injury & Laura went above and beyond her job to make sure that I was set ready to race, so if this is the calibre of just one of these ladies imagine what the rest of the team is like. I wish Lozzer and the rest of the team, every success and look forward to hearing about the adventure of a lifetime."    Ben Hunt-Davis, MBE, Olympic Gold Medallist and Director of Will It Make The Boat Go Faster? Ltd: "What a fantastic adventure to be a part of. To commit to taking on such a challenge with the risks, highs and lows that will undoubtedly be experienced is amazing. The crew have my full admiration and support."    Kate Richardson-Walsh, GB Hockey: "What an amazing event for a fantastic adventure and cause. I wish you all the luck in the world with everything."    Simon Shaw, Double Sailing World Champion: "What an incredible Project and amazing team. You girls totally rock….! 2015 the Pacific will not know what has hit it. This is one of the most ambitious adventures I have worked with and I will be with you in spirit every mile of the way!"     Naomi Riches, British Paralympian Gold Medallist:When I found out about these ladies from Emma’s mum I was really keen to support them. They have a mind blowing challenge ahead for 2 very worthy charities and I have every faith that they will achieve their goal. The charities, Breast Cancer Care and Walking With The Wounded are charities that many people can relate to in some way; I have friends and relatives that could do with the support of both charities and this makes the girls Pacific Ocean challenge even more special for me. Good luck Coxless Crew, go make us proud!!     Chrissie Wellington, 4 times World Ironwoman Champion: "The Coxless Crew are a shining light for us all to follow. They show all of us the importance of stepping out of our comfort zones, living life to the full, exploring, adventuring and never ever looking back to think "what if". They also demonstrate the ability that we all have to use our own personal platforms, no matter how big or small, to support causes close to our heart. I'm truly inspired (and astounded!) by the sheer scale of their challenge and want to wish them all the best in their long journey to Australia. Good luck girls! May the wind always be at your back!

One Boat.
One Ocean.
Fo4r Women.

The Coxless Crew, a team of women have achieved a world first by rowing 8,446 miles unsupported across the Pacific Ocean in 2015/16, from America to Australia, and in the process have raised over £65,000 for their two charities Walking With the Wounded and Breast Cancer Care.


Whether a wounded servicewoman or a survivor of breast cancer, both Charities primary focus is supporting women to overcome adversity.

The vision of The Coxless Crew challenge is to generate awareness of women who face extreme adversity and to raise funds to support their journey towards long-term health and wellbeing.

Any money raised for Walking with the Wounded will go into the UK’s first ever fund dedicated to injured servicewomen.

By completing this challenge the team wish to inspire others to reach for their own potential and to meet the challenges that life throws at them, however big or small. We will all have to face our own Pacific Ocean at some point in our lives.

Our Journey

The Pacific Ocean is the world’s largest ocean, bounded by Australia in the west and the Americas in the east. At sixty-four million square miles, it covers one-third of Earth’s total surface area.

Our row across the Pacific was an unsupported three-stage row starting in San Francisco, California and finishing in Cairns, Australia. Stops were made in Hawaii and Samoa and the entire expedition covered 8,446 miles and took 9 months!

Stops lasted for approximately seven days at a time to restock the boat, repair and replenish supplies, for the team to share their story with the local, national and international media and to swap in one team member.

This route has only ever been completed by solo and pairs teams, never had it been done by a team of four and never had it been done as a continuous three stage row.


Become part of our 8,446 mile journey... 'Buy A Mile' for £10 and your name will be written on our
