Pacific Ocean Row
Skipper of the all-female ocean rowing crew Pacific Terrific, competing in 'The World's Ultimate Endurance Challenge'. The Great Pacific Race pits crews against each other and the ocean to row 2,400 miles from California to Hawaii. No sail, no engine, just muscle.
After 62 days, 18 hours and 36 minutes unsupported at sea, surviving storms, hurricanes, 30ft waves and 45 knot winds, Pacific Terrific rowed into the records books, taking 2nd place in the race (the highest ever placing by a female crew), and setting two shiny new World Records:
1st crew of 3, male or female, in history to row the Pacific Ocean
Youngest crew of 3 to row any of the earth's oceans
Meg's crew rowed to raise funds for the charity Mind, and awareness of the devestating issue of plastic pollution on our oceans.
Adventures Under Sail
Preparations for The Great Pacific Race saw Meg spend many sunny, stormy, beautiful winter weekends sailing The Solent, learning essential skills to equip her for life at sea.
Meg holds her RYA Competent Crew and RYA Yachtmaster Theory qualifications, along with her RYA VHF Licence, RYA First Aid at Sea & RYA Sea Survival certificates.
