Manchester Airport fire fighters, Dean Jagger and Neil Gyllenship rowed 3,000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean for charity. They left La Gomera, Tenerife on 4th January 2010, arriving 75 days later into Antigua Harbour late on Saturday 20th March. The pair had never rowed before they began their strict training regime in the summer of 2009. Whilst on board the 30 foot long 'spirit of MA' they took in turns to sleep in the cabin and row through the night. They ate boil in the bag food and drank purified sea water. They rowed nude, to prevent chaffing! They spent almost 3 months away from home and received a hero's welcome when they arrived back into Manchester Airport on Monday 29th March 2010. They raised more than £60,000 which was split between three charities, St Ann's Hospice, Childflight and Claire House children's hospice. They made huge personal sacrifices to raise this money.
