Team Indian Ocean 3100 are a 4 man rowing crew that successfully crossed 3,100 nautical miles of unforgiving Indian Ocean this Summer.
Completing their epic voyage in 75 days, 11hrs and 21mins they are the first crew to row completely unsupported! Along the way they suffered unimaginable fatigue, crippling sores, swam with a whale and nearly collided with a tanker ship.

Expedition & Wilderness Medicine’s University Liaison, Dr Nick Knight was the team’s coach and research coordinator.
Throughout the 3 year project the team continuously filmed the highs and lows of their journey. The BBC took hold of the footage and aired a 15 minute feature on Monday 14th November on BBC’s Inside Out programme. The link to the show on BBC iplayer is below. If you scroll to 19minutes 25 seconds into the programme the feature on Team Indian Ocean 3100 begins there. We even get a glimpse of our University Liaison!
With best wishes,
The Expedition & Wilderness Medicine Team
