Row For Peace launched from New York's North Cove Marina on May 23rd, 2015.
On 19 May 2015, Seattle-based AKUT athlete Erden Eruç, world’s leading ocean rower, will launch from New York on a ROW FOR PEACE across the Atlantic and the Mediterranean Sea toward Gallipoli, commemorating the centenary of the Battle of Gallipoli. The row will proceed during the same months that the battle took place a century ago.

Turkish-born Eruç will be rowing with his Australian teammate Kendon Glass until Morocco, and British-Australian teammate Mark Gasson thereafter. They will fly Turkish, Australian, New Zealand and British flags on the rowboat to honor their shared sacrifices and to emphasize the value of peace. Their feat will also be the first mainland-to-mainland crossing of the Atlantic from North America to Africa.

Eruç said: “Our struggle against nature will be nowhere near as daunting as the challenges that the troops had faced; they will be in our minds.”

Gallipoli is remembered as “the last gentlemen’s war” where troops benefited from the proximity of the trenches, tossing food and cigarettes to the enemy side. This camaraderie, coupled with the gallantry and heroism each side displayed, created a lasting respect, admiration and friendship among the nations which fought each other. In 1985, the Turkish Government officially renamed the beaches where the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) troops landed as the ANZAC Cove. Every year since then, a dawn service is held during the memorial ceremonies.

Row for Peace is conceived on the mutual respect and friendship that exists today between the people of Turkey, Australia and New Zealand.
