The Team

Oarsome Army Educators

Our team is taking part in The World’s Toughest Row – Atlantic in 2024 to raise awareness of the enriching contribution of the ETS to the Army offer.

Made up of four officers from the Educational and Training Services branch of the British Army, we know a thing or two about discipline and getting the best out of people. We’ll need these skills during the challenge.

Ways to Support

Sponsorships and more

This is a big project. We have the energy, drive and enthusiasm but we are not masters of all the skills and expertise it will take to ensure success.

From social media to corporate engagement, logistics, merchandising, finance, training and fundraising, we need all the help we can get.
We need your skills. We need you!
