Meet Our Team That Will Be Conquering The Ocean Row


Julie Eddicott

For the past 8 years Julie has stood on the bow of a yacht during Antigua Regatta season watching the Talisker 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. It is now time to row an Ocean.  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.
