Former Greenhead student rows the Atlantic

Victoria Evans, formerly a student at Greenhead from 2003-2005, is currently undertaking a Guinness World Record attempt for the fastest female to solo row the Atlantic. She is aiming to reach Barbados in less than the current world record of 49 days, 7 hours 15 minutes. Victoria is using this challenge as a platform to shine a light on continuing gender inequality in sport and to raise £50k for the charity Women in Sport, the only organisation in the UK that researches sport purely from the perspective of women and girls, and who use the insight gained to instigate change through campaigns and partnerships. All of the money raised by Victoria’s dedicated Go Fund Me page will have a huge impact in helping to drive this change.
