Tame the Kraken is an official 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

All donations are tax deductible. Tax ID: 82-2748957

The Campaign Goals are ambitious but realistic, even though many have said it’s almost as hard to get to the start line as it is to row across the Atlantic. We're confident that with help to cover our operational costs, our attention can quickly turn to fundraising events and activities to raise money to connect those in need with the individuals and organizations that can provide assistance.

Our fundraising target is to raise a minimum of $222,222 that will be divided equally between the charities. Please share this with friends and family and help us 'Tame the Kraken'.

A little about me - I have a strong military background that serves me well when considering rowing more than 3,000nm across an ocean.

 

A native of Hereford, England I now live in Atlanta, USA. I became a member of the Royal Marine Commandos in 1990 after a couple of winter deployments in Norway and serving in the first Gulf War I was successful in joining the Special Boat Service (SBS).  As such I have spent much of my adult life either in, on or under the water.

 

Since leaving the SBS I have continued to pursue a varied career providing support, training and advising private clients around the globe, many of which operate in predominately ‘hostile environments’.

Other than participating in a local charity regatta with some members of my old rugby club, the only other rowing experience I have is clocking up miles on an ‘erg’ at the gym. However I have never shied away from a challenge and plan on crossing the finish line in Antigua regardless of what the Atlantic has in store for me.
