The Duratus Mind - A podcast exploring all things mindset and motivation. Gaz, a former Special Forces Sergeant Major but now performance consultant, opens up his network to try and understand what motivates some to risk so much, why some are so driven, and what it really takes to achieve success in any sector.
This episode Gaz speaks to another old friend Dinger Bell. Dinger is a former Royal Marine who since leaving the military has completed a number of arduous challenges. None however are quite as tough as the New York to United Kingdom solo unsupported row that he was about to commence. What Dinger is about to commence will be a world first if he is successful. As those familiar with Ocean rowing will recognise that there is normally a crew of rowers aboard their craft working on a routine enabling there always to be someone rowing and making progress. As a solo rower, when you're not rowing you're at the mercy of the elements.
The North Atlantic is a very different crossing than the more usual Mid Atlantic route. Fewer than 60 people have EVER rowed across the North Atlantic while over 100 people rowed the Mid Atlantic last year alone.
