About GB Row
GB Row is the ultimate rowing challenge that will see a full circumnavigation of the UK, launching 12 June 2022.
As well as being an incredible physical challenge, GB Row is set to be one of the most important examples of sport and science combining, with teams collecting data from the seas throughout its journey.
The boats will also collect daily samples of micro plastic, temperature, salinity, and record a sound scape of the seas to uncover the pollution and stress on the seas. The boats will also collect eDNA to reveal the impact on biodiversity. Together the data will present the most detailed picture of the health of our seas, the where the pollution pressure is greatest and its impact on biodiversity.
