In February 2022, Karen Weekes became the first Irish woman to row solo, and unsupported across any ocean. As part of the SHECANDO2021 campaign, Karen successfully rowed 3,000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean, completing the journey in 80 days. This presentation will share some of her mental and physical planning for the row, and also will give insights into the challenges she faced while out at sea and how she coped with the hardships of rowing an ocean solo. Video communications made throughout her row can currently be seen @shecando2021 social media platforms.

This event is taking place during Cork Harbour Festival, 3-13 June 2022
