Andrew grew up in Surrey, UK and attended boarding school where he pursued the love of sports . Having captained his school, college and university at rugby, his love of sports didn’t stop there – he has an affinity for extreme challenges, always looking to push the boundaries. He finished 194th out of 1250 in the Marathon Des Sables considered the toughest footrace on earth; completed 7 Ironman and 3 Ultra-Marathon competitions; successfully climbed Kilimanjaro in Africa (5895m) and Aconcagua in Argentina (6962m) as well as swimming from Asia to Europe.
Andrew’s motivation stems from the physical and mental challenge of rowing an ocean, and also the social cause – reducing the amount of plastic in our Oceans. He believes its something that needs action as it affects all of us and future generations. Also, he would love to own a world record!
