About Me

The youngest person to ever row across the Atlantic solo and unassisted. The ``World's Toughest Row``.

In December 2018 I will set off from La Gomera to row 3000 miles, alone, across the Atlantic Ocean. Upon arrival in Antigua, hopefully, no more than 60 days after my departure, I will become “The youngest person to ever row across the Atlantic solo and unassisted“.

I’m a British 18-year-old young man, and due to my Italian and Austrian parents, I will also become the 1st Austrian and 3rd Italian to have done such a challenge alone. 

This will by no means be an easy journey, facing all that nature has to throw at me. Battling against storms, 30-40 ft waves, sleep deprivation, injuries, and rowing for up to 16 hours/day, for 60 – 80 days straight, etc.

However, although physically I will be as alone as anyone could ever be, I know that I will not be completely alone, as I am certain that back home my friends, family, and all my supporters will follow this ‘extraordinary’ journey by an ‘ordinary’ young man.

This will by no means be an easy journey.
