United Row’s Race Across the Pacific

June 8 @ 8:00 am - August 8 @ 8:00 am

Cheer on best friends, Anna McLean & Jenny D’Anthony as they attempt a record breaking challenge to be the youngest and fastest female pair to row across the Pacific Ocean for The World’s Toughest Row.

They will leave on UN World Oceans Day, Saturday, June 8th 2024 from Monterey, California and finish 2800 miles and approximately 60 days later at Hanalei Bay on the stunning island of Kaua’i, Hawaii.

Anna & Jenny met almost 10 years ago on the Clemson Rowing Team. Anna from the United Kingdom & Jenny from the United States known together as “United Row”

“At Clemson we have alway been able to count on each other to pour their heart into every race whilst having a good time.

We’ve always had each others back, both on and off the water. By fate or by luck we ended up living together in a small town in Arizona and from then on passion for adventure and challenge flourished.

Finding ourselves doing spontaneous adventures.. summiting mountains on repeat, cycling as far as our legs would take us all in ‘mostly’ high spirits and whacky 1/2 marathons… our friendship thrived when we both realized we always say “YES!”

It was an inevitable “Yes!” to our next adventure, Rowing the Pacific. Standing united, we are ready to conquer the pacific ocean together with your support.”

Jenny and Anna are advocates for the ocean and the environment and will be rowing through the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. By rowing across the Pacific, they want to awaken new depths of understanding, compassion, collaboration, commitment, and more. They are also rowing to help financially support Clemson’s women student-athletes.

Jenny is an open water ocean swimmer in Jacksonville, Florida, which connects her with Joni Roberts and Evolution University, Friends of UN World Oceans Day and UN Global Goals Week Partner.
