Scrabble is sponsoring James Ketchell as he attempts to beat the current record of rowing 3,600 miles across the Indian Ocean within 85 days.
Commencing on 9th May, James will be rowing alongside epilepsy sufferer Ashley Wilson to raise money for the Young Epilepsy, Elifar Foundation and Scouts charities. During the row, the pair will be playing Scrabble for entertainment.
James commented: “As a keen Scrabble player, I am looking forward to testing my wordsmith skills against Ash as we embark on this epic challenge. The challenge is not only physical, but also about mental strength so Scrabble is a great way to ensure we keep our minds active and focused whilst at sea.”
