Episode #26 Ross and Duncan from Five in a Row with Andy Stevenson


The whole Rett Syndrome community were enthralled as the Five in a Row team set off from the Canary Islands last December in the Talisker Whisky Challenge.

Rowing the Atlantic is on the bucket list for most adventurers and five guys from Scotland did just that and supported Reverse Rett too. What a test of physical and mental endurance it is!

The boys were rowing in honour of Eliza who has Rett Syndrome. Her dad, Ross McKinney was part of the team and it was a real privilege to talk to Ross and the boat’s skipper, Duncan Hughes about their epic adventure on the high seas.

I hope you enjoy listening to Ross and Duncan as much as I did. Having done plenty of challenges over the years I was fascinated to hear the inside story of these two North Berwick legends. I didn’t dwell too much on the infamous ‘Jobby Bucket’ you’ll be pleased to know.
