A six strong all women crew will be rowing 2000 nautical miles non stop around the British coastline. They will row in a clockwise direction, starting and finishing at London’s Tower Bridge, in shifts of two hours. Three crew members on the oars and three resting, day and night.They will be negotiating busy shipping lanes, changeable winds and fast turning tides, with little sleep and constant exposure to sun, wind and rain. It will certainly call on immense physical endurance, but also incredible mental resilience.

This team comprising of health professionals, wants to raise awareness for the charity Renewable World, which uses clean, sustainable energy to improve the lives of remote communities. Team ‘All Systems Row’ hopes to leave a minimal carbon footprint. All power will be generated from solar panels and a desalinator will convert seawater into drinking water.

We are happy that our Freet Flex shoes are a perfect fit with this worthy cause. Plastics have become an ever increasing issue in our Oceans. What better way for Freet to support the team by providing shoes made from recycled plastic bottles.

They are setting off on June 12th and are hoping to complete the Race in 35 days  – Good luck  All Systems Row.
