The Mayor of Bristol has encouraged the city to support University of Bristol student Elsa Hammond in her attempt to single-handedly row the Pacific, in what he described as an “incredible, mad feat”.

Elsa, who is the only female solo European competitor to be racing in the 2,400 mile race, aims to raise £100,000 for her participation in the inaugural Great Pacific Race. She will use this to heighten awareness of plastic pollution in the world’s oceans – raising money for the Plastic Oceans Foundation.
