At the end of May 2013, I will attempt to row solo across the North Atlantic Ocean, from New York to Stornoway (NY2SY). It's a distance of over 3400 miles and it will take me just over 3 months to complete the crossing. Only 10 people have ever rowed solo across the North Atlantic and no one has ever completed the route that I am undertaking.
As well as being a personal challenge, I am also raising awareness and funds for the 'Scottish Association for Mental Health' and I have set myself a fundraising target of £100,000. I have suffered my own problems with mental health and want to show that they can be overcome and do not have to define who you are or what you can achieve.
Please get in touch if you think that you, or your company, can help in anyway with sponsorship or equipment.
'NY2SY: Solo North Atlantic Row' is a unique and historic opportunity for companies to get involved in a true adventure.
NY2SY has already received widespread coverage on TV, radio, print press, online and is the subject of a BBC documentary. It is also being supported by Sir Chris Hoy MBE:
“Niall Iain's challenge to row across the Atlantic to raise funds for SAMH is an inspiration to all of us. Taking on an endurance event like this will require a great deal of physical and mental strength, and on behalf of everyone at SAMH I would like to wish Niall Iain good luck and all the very best for the challenge.”
Sir Chris Hoy MBE
NY2SY will maintain a high profile in the media throughout the duration of the challenge. There will be regular blog updates, news reports, live interviews and NY2SY will also gain further reach by making use of various social media platforms.
NY2SY can give your company exposure on both sides of the Atlantic and over an extended period of time.
You can be part of NY2SY!
