Over the years, Tulkinghorn has written about many bold ventures undertaken by lawyers in the name of charity. But rowing 3,000 miles across the Atlantic in a 23-foot boat is perhaps going a bit far.
However, that's what Clifford Chance global risk management director Chris Andrews, together with rowing partner Clint Evans, is doing at the moment. The pair are mid-ocean in a boat (decorated, for some reason, to look like a cow) appropriately named C2.
The duo is competing in the annual Atlantic rowing race from La Gomera in the Canary Islands to Antigua. The race poses a number of interesting challenges for competitors, most notably that rowing naked is apparently the best way of reducing the blisters on the rowers' backsides.
As well as trying to avoid getting eaten by sharks and stay afloat, team C2 is also raising money for the Parkinson's Disease Society and the National Autistic Society.
A month into the race, Andrews and Evans were lying a commendable second in the pairs class and fourth overall, chasing double Olympic gold medallist James Cracknell and his partner, television presenter Ben Fogle. But with well over 1,000 miles to go, anything can happen.
