Team story

<p>In January 2012, six men in a boat are going to attempt to become the first crew to row across the Atlantic in under 30 days!</p> <p>They're doing it for charity - including our own Have a Heart supporting ChildLine! It is one of the most gruelling challenges in the world and one in which each crew member will burn over 12,000 calories every day!</p> <p style="margin-top: 0px; margin-right: 0px; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-left: 0px; line-height: 18px; font-size: 12px; padding: 0px;">The&nbsp;sea trials started in April 2011 and the&nbsp;selection process had&nbsp;just one aim in mind &ndash; find a crew with the ability to row&nbsp;across the Atlantic Ocean in under 30 days.&nbsp;Following this series of trials a&nbsp;crew of ian Rowe (can you believe his initials are i Rowe!!!) from Harrold just north of Bedford, Aodhan Kelly, Simon Brown, Yaacov Mutnikas, Mark Beaumont and skipper&nbsp;Matt Craughwell from Hertford&nbsp;were selected, and since that time they have all been&nbsp;training&nbsp;with this one goal in mind.</p> <p style="margin-top: 0px; margin-right: 0px; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-left: 0px; line-height: 18px; font-size: 12px; padding: 0px;">The attempt will commence in January when conditions are considered at their peak. &nbsp;Over the course of the&nbsp;Odyssey Heart will be keeping you up to date with training, trials, tribulations and successes each morning on Heart Breakfast with Stuart &amp; Natalie.</p> <p style="margin-top: 0px; margin-right: 0px; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-left: 0px; line-height: 18px; font-size: 12px; padding: 0px;">Find out more about the challenge in the Have a Heart section of heart.co.uk</p>
