After Dinner Speaker: The Bristol Gulls

We are excited to be joined by Lorna Carter from The Bristol Gulls as our after dinner speaker for the evening.

Lorna is an ocean rower and composite manufacturing engineer. On 27 January 2021, Lorna completed an unsupported 3000 mile rowing race across the Atlantic Ocean after 46 days, 7 hours and 50 minutes at sea! Rowing in a team of four women called The Bristol Gulls, their crossing was part of the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, from the Canary Islands to the Caribbean.

In their ambitious bid to trailblaze sustainability; The Bristol Gulls became the first crew in the race’s history to complete the row in an Eco Boat. The boat was manufactured from more sustainable materials and processes in order to lower its impact on the environment; it contains around 10,000 recycled plastic bottles in its foam core alone!

The ocean crossing tested the crew in many aspects of endurance, but the four women stepped off the other side as one resilient team. Lorna shares her experience on this adventure: the highs, the challenges and the importance of team working on and off the water.
