Row Around The World Guiness World Record Attempt

On Wednesday 28th May 2008, David Holby began an attempt to set a Guinness World Record by becoming the first person to row around the world on a land rowing machine.
Raising money for Breakthrough Breast Cancer, he will row 40,075km (the total distance around the earth’s equator), hopefully in just a little over two and a half years, rowing 6 – 7 hours a day, 5 – 6 days a week. Nearly two years into the row he is now three-quarters through the challenge having clocked 30,000km and raised £13,000. David will be based primarily in The Malls Shopping Centre in Basingstoke, North Hampshire but will also spend days rowing in other shopping centres across Hampshire and Berkshire.
