Heritage Resorts welcomes British Rowers following charity row challenge

Heritage Resorts in the south of Mauritius will be welcoming four British rowers as they finish a mammoth rowing challenge to help raise awareness and funds for Young Onset Parkinson’s Disease.  

 

The quartet are scheduled to land in the capital of Port Louis tomorrow, after a gruelling voyage of 3,600 nautical miles, and 1,920 hours of unassisted, non-stop rowing from the starting point of Exmouth, Western Australia.

Heritage Resorts is supporting the ‘Row the Indian Ocean 2018’ initiative by offering the group a well-deserved and rejuvenating home-from-home retreat at the exclusive Heritage the Villas, set adjacent to its private 2,500-hectare nature reserve.

The Indian Row Challenge was inspired by one of the teammates Robin Buttery, who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease two years ago. By Robin taking part in this huge endurance challenge it means that extensive research into the disease can be carried out at Oxford Brookes University, the results of which could modify how Parkinson’s disease is explored and treated in the future.

Joining him in this challenge is skipper Billy Taylor and fellow rowers Barry Hayes and James Plumley. Fewer than 50 people can claim to have rowed the Indian Ocean – putting this into context, more than 500 people have been into space and Everest has been summited over 7,500 times.

Upon completion the rowers will rest at the resort before they head home, which specialises in wellness retreats with onsite spa services and a private chef who will prepare Mauritian-inspired dishes for them. 


The crew will be raising money in aid of Young Onset Parkinson’s Disease via Clear Trust and donations can be made at crowdfunder.co.uk/row-the-indian-ocean or for more resort info go to heritageresorts.mu
