Dear Supporter,

We're pleased to share news that Jordan Wylie - a fundraiser for Seafarers UK - successfully completed his 'Rowing Dangerously' challenge and became the first person in history to successfully row solo, unsupported and unarmed, across the most dangerous body of water on the planet. 

'The maritime industry is full of hard working, humble and inspirational people that often go about their business in the shadows of society on the high seas. I am proud to be flying the flag for Seafarers UK and helping raise awareness for the incredible charity.' 

Read more about 'Rowing Dangerously' and how you could attend a charity ball to celebrate this incredible achievement, below and on our website.

Best wishes,

Laura Gineitaite, Editor
