Over the past 10 years, adventurer Jock Wishart has been organising challenges from London to Paris.
For the 2012 Challenge, Jock has handed the reins to Roger Gould (Atlantic rower in the first Atlantic
Rowing Race, 1997) so that he may devote his full undivided attention to his other
organised challenges such as his Row to the Pole expedition in August 2011.
