Team Building and Conference Keynote Speaker
A thrilling account of the most amazing adventures of Ocean Rowers who risked their lives to set a record and achieve their vision.
Want your team to be inspired? Do you want to turn your dreams into visions and then into reality? Do you want to succeed, release team spirit, determination and adaptability to work together in business or even for your own adventure? If you can say yes to all of these then 189 days, 10 hours and 55 minutes is a story that must be told .......... and you must hear.
This is the incredible story from a former Royal Marine Commando, Film Maker, Sailor and Adventurer who will captivate the audience and unleash your own adventure. Mick to his friends rowed the Atlantic Ocean in 2001 and 2005. In between these two voyages he attempted to row the 7000 miles across the North Pacific from Choshi in Japan to the Golden Gate Bridge San Francisco. Never done before...... And he soon found out why!
His first attempt ended very quickly with the rudder on his ocean rowing boat being ripped off in horrific storms. With the second single handed attempt he suffered a freak capsize that sank his boat just after 4,500 miles and 2/3rds of the way in. But trapped inside the boat he had to figure out how to escape. If that wasn't enough a precarious rescue saw Mick plucked from the jaws of death by a passing container ship!
Undeterred his new boat 'Bojangles' was built, courage restored and motivation reinstalled for a third attempt, as Mick and fellow rowing companion Chris Martin tackle as a team what the North Pacific had to throw at them. They set off on their epic journey through perilous hurricanes, 60ft gigantic waves, sleep deprivation, near starvation and a fire that nearly took their lives. Rowing 2 hours on and 2 hours off...... 24/7 around the clock.
