Huge congratulations to Sebastian and Max Sogan, who
successfully completed their 72 mile row from Bedford to The Wash for the
Bedford Daycare Hospice over half term.
The brothers, together with ocean
rower and Old Bedfordian Ian Rowe (73-84), and Star Club rower David Sogan, set
off from Priory Marina at 10am on Sunday 25 October. Working together, Max and
Sebastian rowed for half an hour and then had half an hour off throughout the
journey. They also endured two nights camping on the boat before arriving at
Denver Sluice (the sea) at 1.30pm on Tuesday 27.
Sebastian celebrated his 15th birthday on the
Monday of the trip and gave a live radio interview with his brother that
evening. Their initial target was £1000 and to date they have raised £2170 for
Bedford Daycare Hospice. A fantastic achievement!
