Simon Lyddon (L 94) Rowing the Atlantic Ocean

25 March 2021

Simon has recently set off on his incredible journey,  rowing across the Atlantic Ocean with a team of 11 other adventurers in the inaugural trip of the “Roxy expeditions” set up by Rannoch Adventures.

They are rowing from the Canaries to Antigua – 3000 miles unsupported. Rowing in shifts of 3 hours, on 3 hours and facing waves of up to 40ft all whilst suffering sea sickness, blisters, salt sores and sleep deprivation. Simon is doing this for an incredible cause and we wish you all the best!

‘Two years ago my wife Mel was diagnosed with breast Cancer. The treatment and support we have been given by the Macmillan Cancer Unit at Hereford Hospital has been truly exceptional. We are hoping to raise what we can to help Macmillan Cancer Support continue to provide this vital support to the 360,000 people who are diagnosed in the UK with cancer every year. A diagnosis of cancer is life changing but with the right support it is possible to learn to dance in the rain’
