In December 2024 Ananya Prasad will be embarking on an epic 3000 mile solo row across the Atlantic Ocean, as part of the World's Toughest Row. If successful, she will be the first woman of colour to ever solo row an ocean.
With zero nautical experience prior to signing up, Ananya's drive to push herself on a new challenge in the outdoors has evolved into a journey of representation. Born in India and raised in the UK, Ananya has always found there was a glaring lack of diversity in adventure sport. In undertaking this challenge she hopes to inspire more people of colour and women into adventure sport and rowing.
Ananya hopes that through her participation, one day women and people of colour in adventure sport isn’t idiosyncratic, but the norm. Return to this page to watch the film, soon to be released.
