SAVE THE DATE: May 2017 Members’ Evening with Lauren Morton from Row Like a Girl

Row like a girl Lauren Morton

The next members’ evening is one you do not want to miss! Lauren Morton, from Collingham, is a Yorkshire born adventurer, ocean rower and double Guinness World Record holder. On Tuesday 9th May, Lauren will be coming to talk to Drivers’ Club members about her two attempts at rowing across the Atlantic Ocean.

Lauren’s first attempt, aged just 23 years old, ended in a rescue but the second was an unbelievable success when, as part of the ‘Row Like a Girl’ team, Lauren overcame gender barriers, 50 foot waves, a broken boat, intense bouts of sea sickness and Hurricane Alex to break two Guinness World Records, becoming the fastest team of females to cross any ocean and the youngest female four to ever attempt the feat.
