About | Business Exchange with the Yorkshire Rows

Yorkshire Rows is a team of four formidable mums from Yorkshire who are the first women to row across the North Sea and who also hold a world record for rowing across the Atlantic.

First impressions of these four courageous women is that they are not professional sports women rather they are four ordinary working mums who "dared to dream".

The four women all from Yorkshire took up rowing at a local club four years ago. Each week after taking their children to school they would venture out onto the river Ouse and learn to row, rounded off with tea and cakes and then straight back to work in the afternoon.

In January 2013 they decided to take on the herculean task of entering the world toughest rowing race 3000 nautical miles from the canaries to Antigua. It took almost three years to plan and prepare for the row. The story they tell is incredible, inspiring, motivating, humbling and funny. These women are Yorkshires own heroes.
