Would you like the chance to own a piece of history?
We are auctioning off one of the oars from Team Ocean Valour to further increase the funds raised for the Brain Tumour Charity. This oar has been used during the team’s historic departure from Manhattan, New York and during the day when they set a new Guinness World Record for the greatest 24 hour distance by ocean row boat. It will also be used as the team complete their journey and arrive into Salcombe.
Once the team land the exact details of the auction will be announced on this page but we expect it to be at Whitestrand in the centre of Salcombe on the day the crew arrives.
Bidding will start at £500.
At this stage we are accepting bids over email for the oar so to put your offer in please just send an email confirming your bid for the oar to [email protected]. However, please be aware that the oar is quite long (3m) and that you will need to arrange collection of the oar from Salcombe (although we will do our best to get it to wherever you are using our network of supporters around the country.)
All profits go to the Brain Tumour Charity and will continue to increase the total amount raised for the charity currently shown on the team’s Just Giving page. Please note that this auction is for one oar, not the matching pair.
