MEET THE MAN BEHIND THE ROW

Peter Harley

Peter Harley, is a 61 year old South African now living in North Carolina USA. He is an adventurer, extreme sport enthusiast, animal lover and deeply passionate about our planet. He is ready to take action and bring about change.

“Everything I do, I put my all into. I believe that one of the great challenges in life is to challenge yourself. We have become accustomed to limitations brought about by our own perceptions, beliefs and social expectations, but when we step away from that and change “can’t” to can, we have the ability to accomplish more than we thought of ourselves, regardless of age or gender.”

Training, Diet & Preparation

The training for this event started in January of 2020. It involves a combination of endurance and strength training. Running several times a week and weight training to build upper body and leg strength.

MEET ON SHORE COMMUNICATIONS

Bonnie Evans

Hi There, I’m Bonnie and I’m lucky enough to call Peter my Dad.  I was born and raised in South Africa and now live in California, USA.

I feel truly honored to be sharing this journey with my Dad. While I won’t be with him on the boat, I’ll be utilizing my career in marketing to help bring this adventure to reality, by building the NAC awareness, following and telling the story of our mission we are so determined to accomplish.

If there is anything my Dad has taught me, it’s perseverance, resilience and to never limit yourself to what you “can’t” do, but discover who you can be, with the willingness to push yourself outside of your comfort zone.
