‘On Tempestuous Seas - Crossing Your Own Ocean’
Elin Haf Davies,
Campaigner and Adventurer
Elin qualified as a Children's Nurse in 1998, before going on to complete a BSc (Hons), an MSc and a PhD at University College London. She gained 13 international A caps for the Welsh rugby squad, was the first Welsh woman to row across the Atlantic Ocean and was part of the first all-female crew to ever row across the Indian Ocean in 2011. She completed her personal hat-trick of oceans when she sailed across the north Pacific in 2012. She campaigns to develop medicines for ill children and uses her adventures as a platform to raise awareness about rare childhood disorders and the need to develop new drugs.
Not everyone wants to row across an ocean (obviously!) but we all have a personal challenge that we want to complete and she hopes that the lessons she learnt on the waves can help others to prepare for their own challenges.
