Westminster Inspires: Meg Dyos – The Spirit of Rowing
This autumn, join us to hear alumna Meg Dyos’s amazing story of joining the first all-female Coxless Crew for the final leg of their world record-breaking journey across the Pacific Ocean. The Coxless Crew rowed from America to Australia in 257 days, a journey of 8,446 miles, in a 29-foot boat named Doris.
Meg (English Literature, 2014) will regale the highs and lows of the trip; from wildlife spotting and enjoying ocean sunrises and sunsets, to enduring sun burn and surviving on 5,000 calories of freeze dried food a day. She will also explain why the crew did all of this to support women that have had to face diversity and overcome life changing events.
This is the first event in our brand new Alumni Team series ‘Westminster Inspires’. Keep your eyes peeled for more activities and events on the horizon…
On Thursday 6th October at 1pm in room UG04 Regent Street screening of the documentary “D is for Dyslexia”
