London Lingual supports Jamie’s epic elephant row

Written by

My patient Jamie Douglas-Hamilton is undertaking a ‘World First’ expedition with seven others – rowing 5000 miles across the Indian Ocean from Australia to South Africa starting this April. This is the same distance as Chicago to Moscow! He and his rowing mates are pictured out practising above.

At sea for 3-4 months

It’s hard to imagine what it will be like to be at sea for between 80-100 days. They will row in shifts, two hours on, two hours off for 24 hours a day. Jamie tells me the boat is very safe but nonetheless, the Southern Seas are known for being turbulent and unpredictable. This is a very courageous expedition and if they succeed, they will make it into the Guinness Book of records.

Jamie told me he is doing the row in support of Save the Elephants a charity established by his uncle, Iain Douglas-Hamilton. It could not be a more topical charity to support with regular media coverage of the horrifying numbers of African elephants being killed by poachers who want their tusks for ivory. I was so inspired by Jamie’s courage – I have decided to make a donation every time a patient books in to see our hygienist, Sarah Urquhart in the months of April and May. You can support Jamie here or learn more about Jamie’s row here.
