GB Row 2013If they finish as they are expected to, The Islanders will win the GB Row 2013 in record time, crossing the finish line under Tower Bridge at around 5pm on Thursday 27th June. They will then come ashore at HMS President RNR next to St Katharine's Dock. More people have walked on the moon than have successfully rowed around the Great British coastline - and the GB Row 2013, the world's richest rowing race, looks to overturn that striking anomaly. As many as 15 boats are expected to take part in the gruelling 2,000-mile race, which is organised by the Anglo American Boat Club and starts at Tower Bridge. Chasing a bounty of £100,000, crews of two, four or eight oarsmen and women will brave treacherous tides and some of the most dangerous shipping lanes on the planet as they row non-stop and unassisted from London, around Land's End, up to John O'Groats and back to the capital. The current world record is 26 days, 14 hours and 12 minutes set in 2005 by a four-man crew from the Grenadier Guards.

About Tower Bridge

With its views of the Tower Of London and The Shard, Tower Bridge offers one of the best vantage points in the city from its spectacular glass walkways, elevated 140ft above the Thames. The East Walkway boasts fantastic views of the Docklands and the elegant Canary Wharf, while from the West Walkway you can compare the mixed architectural styles of City Hall, the Tower Of London, St Paul's Cathedral, the City, Big Ben and the London Eye.
