James (Tiny) Little: An Atlantic Ocean Rower and fundraiser for the Davenport Trust.

Rowing the Atlantic Ocean

On 20 January 2005 at 10 a.m., Norwich publican, James (Tiny) Little will set out in a small ocean rowing boat from La Gomera in the Canary Isles on a 3,000 mile Atlantic voyage to the Caribbean Island of Antigua. Alone and unsupported he will be at sea for one hundred days.

Tiny is rowing the Atlantic Ocean to raise funds for Norfolk based charity The Davenport Trust, which is helping young people who suffer from depression.

This web site will follow his challenge from conception of the Atlantic row project, the meticulous planning, both for Tiny and his specially prepared ocean rowing boat, charting progress right through the Atlantic voyage to the finish in Antigua.

Please see below for more information about ocean rowing, Womble – Tiny's ocean rowing boat, the biology of the Atlantic Ocean, Tiny's preparations, the special rowing equipment, estimated voyage course and his charity, the Davenport Trust.
