The Skyetime Podcast – The Bristol Gulls
In the latest edition of the Skyetime Podcast, Simon Cousins meets the 'Bristol Gulls'. The Gulls are a team of four female rowers preparing to take on the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge.
The three-thousand-mile race starts from La Gomera in the Canary Isles on the 12th of December and will take between 35 and 55 days to reach the finish line in Antigua.
