Dala What You Must

Dala is a word of Zulu origin meaning ‘to do’ used extensively in the Kaapse Language. Gardens, Cape Town

In 2022, I am going to row across The Atlantic Ocean. 

More people have climbed Everest. 

I will become the first African person of colour to row any ocean, solo. 

This, in an attempt to break the World Record for the furthest row of 5030 Nautical Miles: leaving from Cape Town, crossing the Atlantic and making landfall in Barbados. The voyage will probably take longer than 100 days at sea. Alone.

R500,000 ($35,000) will help me to get my boat: an epoxy ocean rowing boat built by ocean rower and master yacht builder, Wayne Robertson (based on a design by Phil Morrisson). If possible, I’d like to have it designed locally.
