OSCAR funds research at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children that is saving lives. And besides, it’s fantastic networking with shipowners, P&I clubs, insurers, brokers, flags… and more. It’s also great team building and a seriously fun day that sends people home with a big smile on their faces and feeling good about themselves. Last year, shipowners Scorpio and Union Maritime battled it out to become the biggest fundraisers, both raising a remarkable £21,000+ and Scorpio were just pipped to the post in the racing by North P&I.
Teams of 11 (10 rowers and a drummer), pay an entry fee of £500 to help cover costs and pledge to raise £5000 through sponsorship or company donations or fund matching. They can get a morning’s work in, then arrive in London’s Docklands for the race, where a barbecue, bar and music will keep the party going.
How can you help? Enter a team, become a sponsor, or make a donation. Help promote the event and make it our biggest yet. Watch a video of last year’s brilliant race here:
