Marlburian Monday – 17th October 22 – Lebby Eyres (C2 1987-89) ‘My Oar-Some Adventure: Rowing Across the Atlantic’
Lebby Eyres (C2 1987-89) recently delivered the Marlburian Monday titled ‘My Oar-Some Adventure: Rowing Across the Atlantic’. Lebby recently rowed across the Atlantic as part of the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge. Her crew of midlife mums – named The Mothership – finished the race in 40 days, 11 hours and 25 minutes, beating some of the men’s crews and all of the mixed fours. As well as explaining what crossing an ocean entails – from shift patterns to personal hygiene – and the challenges involved, Lebby discussed what she learned in those 40 days and how she is applying those lessons in everyday life.
