Meet Our Team That Will Be Conquering The Ocean Row

Julie_edited.jpg

Julie Eddicott

For the past 10 years Julie has stood on the bow of a yacht during Antigua Regatta season watching the Atlantic boats cross the finish line in English Harbour. It became her quiet dream to row an Ocean and each year she took a step closer. 

 

Julie is a competitive rower for Christchurch Rowing Club and also has a keen interest in sail racing and cruising, so is no stranger to the coastline and more recently sailing across the Bay of Biscay double handed.  Julie is a mum to strapping young men who are just embarking on their own life paths.  So it is now time for her own adventure to row and Ocean.

Ed Dewar

As a winter-sports enthusiast and ex-Army reservist Ed enjoys the thrill of physical exertion. He has a passion for mountaineering, having summitted some of Europe’s most challenging peaks. Whilst his sea-faring experience doesn’t match that of the rest of his crew, he is no stranger to it. He grew up sailing wayfarers in the Camel Estuary in Cornwall, and fishing off the west coast of Scotland. He has since kayaked across the English Channel from the Kent coast to France, and has circumnavigated the Isle of Mull.

 

The past decade or so hasn’t come without its setbacks, including a skiing accident in 2011 which ended his plans of a military tour in Afghanistan, and marked the start of a five-year rehabilitation. The challenges he has faced over the years have helped shape a growing sense of purpose and determination to achieve something special. And so the prospect of a wee paddle across a very large pond has only grown.

More about Ed Professionally

Ed lives in Shepherds Bush, London, and heads up a PR and communications team at RSM UK, a global business consultancy firm in The City. When he’s not working he pursues his passion as a father to his 8 year old son, Angus. They can often be spotted surfing the breaks off the North Devon coast.

Mary Sutherland

Mary is a seasoned ocean rower having crossed two oceans, the Atlantic & the Pacific picking up 3 world records. This will be Mary's final row and will complete Mary’s circumnavigation of the Atlantic Ocean.   She will be take control of Navigation for the team. Mary grew up on the water and spends much of her life competitively sailing and windsurfing.   

 

Mary has the most infectious laugh, is calm under pressure, is always happy and has the kindest and biggest heart.  She loves being part of her community and is always helping connect and bring people together.  We think that Mary is a great asset to Team Ebb & Flow.
