Charlie Pitcher – Has Started His Row around Britain

After departing from the Royal Burnham Yacht Club on Sunday, 31st May, Charlie has experienced some horrendous weather with gale force winds, but he continues to make progress. This is his third day aboard ‘Soma’.  At 17.00 the Track Map at his website* gave his position as 50 degrees, 57 minutes N, 001 degree, 12.11 minutes E, and he was heading along the Norfolk coast on a bearing of 286 degrees at 1.2 knots.  With Cromer astern, he is moving towards Wells-next-the-Sea. At least, there is far less wind than yesterday, and the XCWeather wind speed map is showing a 7 mph wind from astern.

Fund Raising

Charlie is rowing to raise funds for Big Change, which is a charity that supports young people. The charity has at least ten projects on the go. For more information, visit their website (See link below), but if you wish to donate, please do so at Charlie’s donation page. Here’s the address:
