A World Record in aid of The Ark

A huge thank you to Dave Holby and Mike Brydges who not only broke two world records but raised money for us too!

Starting at 9am on Thursday 6th March 2014 in Festival Place, Basingstoke, they began their attempt to break two tandem indoor rowing records - the current 24 hour 20-29 lightweight record of 316.6km and the current endurance 20-29 lightweight record of 24 hours.

Dave, who has previously rowed round the world on a static machine completed 320km in 24 hours to break one record (previously 312km). They then continued for another eight hours to beat the previous record for non-stop rowing.
