Father Must Row the Atlantic Alone Following His Daughter’s Tragic Death
The father of a young woman who passed away at age 25 from an undetected heart problem plans to row across the Atlantic Ocean to honor her memory.
Rutland native Andrew Osborne plans to walk almost 3,000 miles (4,828 kilometers) in a little over 90 days.
Following the 2018 death of his daughter Amy, he hopes to donate to a charity that assisted his family.
Mr. Osborne wants to donate £100,000 to Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) so that those under the age of 30 can have free heart tests.
He plans to begin his journey across the Atlantic in December and has estimated that he would use 1.5 million oar strokes during his journey.
He estimated that the astronauts on the International Space Station may be his closest human contact for a portion of the journey. Mr. Osborne, age 57, has been working with Olympic gold medalist James Cracknell for months. My girls have been running marathons and climbing mountains to raise money for the organization,” he stated.

“Since both Amy and I share a deep appreciation for water, I came up with the brilliant plan to sail across the Atlantic. But then someone said, “That’s more like a holiday than work,” so I went out and got myself a rowing machine. Mr. Osborne expressed how tragic it was for his family to lose their daughter.
Like former England, Leicestershire, and Nottinghamshire cricketer James Taylor, she died of arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy. CRY estimates that each week in the United Kingdom, twelve persons under the age of twenty-five die from cardiac diseases that went undetected.
Mr. Osborne wants to save lives by funding heart screening days at public schools in the East Midlands. This is what he had to say: “Amy passed away while sleeping; she just didn’t wake up. At 25, she was in decent shape physically. It was a tragic situation. Read more: Thailand’s New Abortion Law Defends Competition From Both Buddhists and Christians
“If the electrics in your heart suddenly quit working, don’t blame yourself for having a heart attack. “When it occurred to Amy, she was fast asleep, and we didn’t realize anything was wrong until the next morning when she didn’t get out of bed.
“As her family, we feel obligated to do everything we can to assist her. I do not doubt that Amy’s ghost will be waiting for me when I get there, and she’ll probably be the one to purchase my large lager.
Mr. Osborne plans to depart in December at optimal tide levels and land in Antigua at a bar in April.
Dr. Steven Cox, CRY’s CEO, has said: “Incredibly, Andrew Osborne has promised to do all this in honor of his late daughter Amy.
It will help save young lives by bringing attention to sudden cardiac death and the significance of screening. Read more: Analysis Of Ron Johnson and Mandela Barnes’ Views Regarding Crime, Inflation, and Abortion
