Unfortunately, the team has had to withdraw from participating in the WTR-Pacific

Keep us afloat!     


2 steps forward, one step back.

It's been quiet for a while. We can’t always do what we love most. There’s jobs, workshops, travel all across the Netherlands for student visits and workshops. A family, a well-deserved holiday, rowing competition. Never a dull moment, but that means we are not able to focus 24/7 on our Pacific Campaign.

Running a campaign takes time and energy, it will allows us to row again, for thousands of miles.  And that we can show what we are capable of as women. It is for a reason that we row for the Womens’ Heart.

In August we were able to train together again. On a turbulent Oosterschelde with current and wind we tested the autopilot, rowed with daggerboard and especially made many meters. We felt so familiar with the Mare Fortuna and are able to pick up a routine in everything we do on the boat.

Our desire to participate in the World's Toughest Row in June 2023 is no less. Being on the water together, on the oars, helps a lot!  But despite our efforts and the sponsors we have on board so far, there are factors that mean that we have to postpone our challenge for a year. We are very sorry for this as we wanted dearly to participate in the first Pacific Challenge that Atlantic Campaigns organizes.

We don't linger, we keep looking for companies that want to support us in this adventure for the Women's Heart and are happy when we get a stage somewhere. We were present at the Hiswa, the biggest boat fair in the Netherlands for chats and a presentation. How good it feels to get so much attention.

We will rock in 2024, you bet we will!
