Charlie Martell's latest adventure - 27th March 2012

Charles's son Charlie is already known as an adventurer par excellence.

Having completed my epic row across the North Atlantic Ocean, from West to East in 2006 I now want to push my limits once again. In 2012, I will row solo across the North Pacific Ocean from Japan to the USA. This route has not be successfully rowed by a Briton to date.

Through my challenge, it's my intention to raise the profile of and raise funds for, two very special organisations.

Give Them a Sporting Chance - "no act of human kindness is ever wasted" - aims to help disabled people and their carers wherever possible, regardless of age or disability.

Toe in The Water - the tri-service initiative aims to inspire the men and women who have sustained often traumatic injuries, including the loss of limbs, to move beyond their disability and to become re-inspired by life.

Competitive sailing is a physically and mentally challenging adventurous sport and provides a unique opportunity for injured men and women to sail and race on equal terms with their able bodied contemporaries. Charlie Martell.
