Sally Kettle - Ocean Rower
Sally Kettle speaks and writes of her adventures at sea. Her experiences have inspired and changed the lives of others. As the first woman to row the Atlantic Ocean twice from East to West, Sally tells of rough seas, wild storms, harsh living and encounters with marine wildlife, including sharks. Yet it is Sally’s experiences of people, which provide illumination and insight.
Phoebe Smith - Extreme Sleeps and Wild Nights
Author, editor and speaker Phoebe is adamant that you don’t need to go far to have an adventure. She revels in seeking out the wildest parts of the UK and sleeping in the strangest places - from caves, to mountain tops, beaches and - just once - in front of a Bird's Eye Factory. Hear her talk walking and wild camping solo on her ongoing quest to find the ultimate extreme sleep.
Paula Reid - Adventurer and Performance Catalyst
Paula believes in Living Life to the Full - she has already visited 58 countries and achieved 110 things on her ‘Bucket List’ including sailing around the world and skiing full distance to the South Pole. Paula is joining us to share her Bucket List and her epic South Pole journey of resilience, pain, success, Christmas, tears and whiskey!
Anna Hughes - Round-Britain Cyclist
Anna cycled around the coast of Britain in 2011 and sailed around the same coastline two years later. She has done lots of cycle touring, mainly in the UK and Europe, and loves seeing the world from two wheels. She writes articles on cycling for magazines and has written a book about her cycle ride: Eat, Sleep, Cycle, a bike ride around the coast of Britain. She works as a cycling instructor and mechanic in London and lives on a narrow boat.
Following the talks there will also be the chance to meet a host of other adventurers over drinks at the bar, including ocean rowers and intrepid explorers. Details of these to be announced nearer the date.
Atlantic Endeavour consists of four young women setting out to break two ocean rowing world records by rowing 3,000 miles across the Atlantic whilst raising awareness and funding for the mental health charity Mind and Women for Women International. United by a passion for adventure, and surviving in extreme conditions, we aim to be the first womens’ four to cross the finish line in English Harbour, Antigua in early 2016.
