Throughout their preparations for and and during the row Tom and Lawrence have been supported by two very experienced ocean rowers.
New Ocean Wave is a company that was set up by record setting ocean rower, Chris Martin with the aim of helping people row across oceans. Ordinarily Chris is focussed on two events which New Ocean Wave organises – NOMAN and Great Pacific Race. However, they do also assist those wanting to row different routes independently and have assisted numerous ocean rowers by advising or providing route planning, boat sourcing and setup, logistics, weather routing, 24/7 support network, communications, PR, medical consultancy and a host of other specialised skills and services.
Justin Adkin is providing the crew with a daily weather update and ensuring that Yves is being maintained in the best possible way during the row. As the builder of the boat, Justin has unparalleled knowledge of the inner workings of Yves.
