With two years of preparation and training, Norman Beech and his son James became the first British father and son team to row across the Atlantic in an incredible 3,000 mile rowing challenge, that took them from Tenerife to Antigua.
In the 82 day row, which also saw James celebrating his 19th birthday and becoming the youngest man to row across the Atlantic, the Beech Boys kept an online blog and a ship’s log to record every second of their adventure.
With the support of their family, friends and sponsors, Norman and James managed to row almost 3,000 miles, when most people would struggle with 30 miles, in a 24 foot rowing boat across the second largest piece of water on earth.
The memoirs of their voyage tells the lows of the trip, but also the highs of being followed by whales and dolphins, the fun, humour and of course the close bond of their father and son relationship. Packed with photographs of their time at sea, it is a story of adventure and commitment.
The proceeds of this book will be going to support WaterAid, who Norman and James rowed in aid of.
