Duo battle Atlantic for British Skin Foundation

Half-brothers Greg Bailey and Jude Massey have set off on a 3,000 mile challenge to row across the Atlantic Ocean, aiming to raise £100,000 for the British Skin Foundation.

The duo, both novice rowers, have pledged to raise money for skin cancer research in memory of their late stepdad/dad Peter Massey, who suffered from the disease for 16 years.

Greg, who's a junior doctor, commented: “It’s not just about the money for skin cancer research, but also raising the awareness of checking and protecting the skin from a young age. We have copious amounts of sunscreen and UV protective clothing for our voyage.”

They expect the voyage to take approximately eight weeks and, if successful, Jude will be the youngest man to row any ocean in the world and will become a Guinness World Record holder. They also hope to be the first vegans to complete the crossing.
