Transatlantic Rowers visit the Bath Race!

Fellow Chestnut Tree House fund-raisers, Chris Brooks and Joe Thompson, are currently planning the trip of a lifetime.  In December they will start a 60 day, 2,935 mile trip from La Gomera in the Canaries, across the Atlantic Ocean to Antigua, West Indies.  In a 23 feet long rowing boat!!

Chris and Joe will be present on race day along with their boat, and will be happy to explain about their recreation of Christopher Columbus’s famous voyage.  Hopefully we may also be able to get their boat in the river to accompany the bathtubs!
