The Story

Challenge: to row the Navigable length of the Mississippi from Coon Rapids to New Orleans, but with a difference…. Starting in September 2019 Anton will attempt to row the navigable length of the Mississippi to help raise funds for AHOY to provide rowing and sailing opportunities for underprivileged youth groups, but this wont be just another fancy adventure. Anton is passionate about showing that adventure can be accessible to all and not just the elite few that can afford it. In 2013 Anton rowed the Amazon river with lots of sponsorship and support however this time he’s going solo and leaving all the expensive kit behind. This time he will create his own rowing boat from an old shell, all his adventure gear will come from Charity shops, and his supplies from budget supermarkets and stores. No fancy GPS or maps just the flow of the river and a determination to show that Adventure isn’t about the swanky gear and can be affordable to all. Fully self funded by working a range of different jobs over the past few months from construction to bar work. Anton want to raise 10x the amount it costs for AHOY which gives him even more reason to keep his trip as thrifty as he can. Current estimates expect the attempt to cost around £1,500 (including flights) which puts the target at roughly £15,000. But can he do it for less?
