Debra Searle is a unique and inspiring individual. Debra first hit the headlines when she and her husband set out to row across the Atlantic. Unfortunately, her husband and rowing partner had to be rescued. Debra continued alone and rowed 3000 miles across the Atlantic. It should have taken them 6 weeks but, to achieve her goal, Debra ended up spending 3 ½ months at sea alone.

She also lead a group of women (which included me!) known as The Sisterhood to a new World Record for Dragon Boating across the English Channel. This particular adventure created huge media interest in the UK due to a rather famous teammate – Kate Middleton, now the Duchess of Cambridge.

She achieved a first class honours degree, has launched four companies, won Gold World Championship medals for GB, presented over 40 programmes for the BBC, had two books published and become the youngest ever trustee of The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. Her Majesty The Queen has recognised Debra on two occasions – in 2002 with an MBE and in 2014 with an MVO. She has spoken at over 1000 events across 38 countries.

This 2019 Debra will be making frequent trips to Hollywood as the movie telling the story of her Atlantic row is currently in development.

I am inspired and I hope you are too!
