Roz Savage, an StFF beneficiary, has been recognised in the 2013 Queen’s Birthday Honours with an MBE (Member of the Order of the British Empire) for services to environmental awareness and fundraising.
I sometimes feel like a bit of a fraud calling myself a “solo” rower. Sure, when I’m out on the water, with a satellite phone my only connection to dry land, I do feel very alone. But in truth, I am the tip of a very big iceberg, the visible bit of a huge human endeavour that encompasses everybody who has helped to get me out there, and who motivates me along my way, and who celebrates with me when/after I arrive.
For this I thank you.
