Grant Blakeway Melokuhle Cause

My name is Grant Blakeway. I hail from the city of Durban in Kwazulu Natal, South Africa and I am 58 years old.

In December 2020, I’m going to row 3000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean. In a small boat. By myself.

Why? It’s a question I get asked a lot, and plenty of people think I am absolutely nuts to take on something like this!

Having spent most of my life close to the ocean I know that this is my chance to stand up, speak up and raise the alarm on the level of pollution in our seas. 

It is a problem that affects everyone, and I believe that awareness will lead to action.
