Congratulations to Callum Gathercole who last night
finished his Atlantic crossing and is now in the histroy books as the youngest ever to row across the Atlantic solo at the age of 20.
Callum has spent the last 58 days and 15 hours in a small fibreglass ocean rowing boat to raise money for Brain Tumour Research in memory of his father who sadly passed away in 2012.
Last season training with Molesey's Development Squad and trialled as a U23 lightweight last year. He has assured us that he will be returning to training as soon as he arrives back in the UK and want's to get in to our Henley crews! Prior to Molesey he rowed at Walton Rowing Club with our own Ali Douglass and was coached by current Molesey Junior Coach Nick De Cata.
The Squad will be welcoming him back on his triumphant return this weekend. If you would like to support him and his charities please take a look at his website: http://www.thewaterbabies.co.uk/
He has raised over £200,000 so far. to make a donation take a look at the just giving site here: http://www.justgiving.com/teams/waterbabies
