Series 2, Ep.1 with Frances Davies, Helen Butters and Niki Doeg ,The Yorkshire Rowers.
Welcome back to Out of the Bubble and we are starting Series 2 with a. triple dose of inspiration. Frances Davies, Helen Butters and Niki Doeg are 3 of the 4 women who alongside Janette Benaddi formed The Yorkshire Rowers. These incredible ladies hold the title for being the first women to row any ocean when they rowed across the North Sea and that was just a warm up. They went on to complete the Talisker Whiskey Atlantic Challenge becoming the oldest all female crew to complete the 3000 nautical mile challenge in 2016, aged between 45 and 51 at the time.
Favourite music that helped keep them motivated during the challenge- Mamma Mia soundtrack
Inspiring books- Debra Searle- The Journey, Elizabeth Day- How to Fail and Michelle Obama -Becoming
Who inspires you? All three women said they get inspired by the people they meet on a daily basis. People that have come to them and shared their stories. Everyone has a story.
