We rowed in a Thames Waterman Cutter named Trinity Tide owned by Trinity House (The lighthouse people). We also rowed the same boat last year doing a 100 mile row, in aid of help for heroes raising over £13K and the year before we climbed Ben Nevis raising £7K towards the Brightside School PTA Mini Bus.[/quote]
