Welcome to the Coxless Crew!

Laura Penhaul By

The Coxless Crew team were previously involved with the Coxless Rowers that was developed approx. 2 years ago by Annabel Hancock and Laura Penhaul.  Annabel is unfortunately no longer involved in rowing the Pacific Ocean in 2014, but the vision of the row is still continuing with Laura and the team; Natalie Miles, Ella Hewton and Emma Mitchell. Due to the change of team and in respect of Annabels’ contribution, we are continuing under a new name ‘Coxless Crew’.

An expedition of this scale is certainly called a ‘challenge’ for a reason, but as everyone says ‘it’s getting to the start line which is the hardest’, so surely that’ll mean the rowing part will be ‘plain sailing/ rowing’ .

So a sneaky peak at what we’ve been doing over the last couple of months;

Alongside developing a new website http://www.coxlesscrew.com (huge thanks to Steph http://www.designbystephaniej.com who worked closely with Ella)

Refreshing a new brand, logo and sponsorship packs  (massive thanks to Steve http://www.uk.linkedin.com/in/iamcoe for working with Nat)

Making fundraising ideas a reality with our #BuyAMile (thanks to Tom for making this short film in a day, wigs and watching you cut Nats hair will be a comedy moment savored for the boat http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mf33HC1LG0I !)

Plus our Inspirational Talk Night on 11th November and the amazing support of our key speakers giving up their time to share their experiences http://www.coxlesscrew.com/events/

We have also partnered with ‘Walking With The Wounded’ http://walkingwiththewounded.org.uk/ as our primary charity alongside ‘Breast Cancer Care’. A blog will follow this week with more information and exciting developments.

And finally, we’ve been developing some amazing partnerships with sponsors that are generously contributing to the build of our boat and thanks to them our boat will be on the water by the end of November. Exciting times!

 

Thank you for your continued support and take a look at our new website  www.coxlesscrew.com
