Former Olympic rower takes on round-Britain challenge gathering environmental data

The three-time Olympic champion and four-time world champion rower, Andy Triggs Hodge OBE, has launched from London’s St Katharine Docks to begin the GB Row Challenge. Three rowing crews will take part, completing a circumnavigation around Great Britain, while gathering the largest collection of marine scientific data from rowing boats ever recorded. The challenge aims to collect environmental data from coastal waters that will produce the clearest ever picture of the health and stress on our marine ecosystem.
