Two Yorkshire friends who were introduced to each other on the 1st Tee at Alwoodley Golf Course in 2011, are now swapping the fairways for the Atlantic Ocean as they take on the World's Toughest Row.

David Knaggs and Richard Larking regularly enjoy playing as partners in competitions at Alwoodley, both winning and losing silverware. They both however, shared a desire for a greater challenge than the golf course, and during the early hours of the morning on a friends 60th birthday trip, the idea to participate in the Atlantic challenge was floated. After the hangovers disappeared, the desire to take on the challenge remained.

David will have just turned 60, and Richard 59, when the 2025 challenge starts. The pair who are both qualified solicitors and fathers of two children, are relishing setting themselves such an extreme challenge, seeking to show that age is just a number and that with the required motivation, anything is possible.
