Our first Remarkable Women Lecture since the pandemic will be given by our record-breaking alumnae rowers from team ExtraOARdinary, led by LEH Head of Rowing Abby Johnston.
Book your tickets now for Thursday 29th September at 7pm, when you’ll get the inside story of how two of our alumnae and their friend with incurable cancer smashed the world record as a trio, rowing across the second largest expanse of water on the planet in the Talisker Atlantic Whisky Challenge earlier this year.
Abby Johnston, Class of 2007, Charlotte Irving, Class of 2008, and Kat Cordiner will reveal how they completed the 3,000 mile crossing in just 42 days, seven hours and 17 minutes, knocking an astonishing seven days off the female trio record.
Abby says: “We received such amazing support from the LEH community that we’re really looking forward to sharing some of the things we learnt by taking part in the challenge. When you push yourself to the limits, you realise what you are made of. Having been through this together we now have an unbreakable bond and it taught us as much about teamwork as it did about our own strengths and weaknesses. We learnt that if you work hard, really hard, you will succeed.”
The event will be followed by a drinks and canapes reception. Tickets cost £15, or £5 if you're over 70 or under 18, or a member of LEH staff.
