Each year, Macmillan Cancer Support (Jersey) encourages Islanders to make a New Year’s fitness resolution and ‘pull together’ for its annual indoor Rowathon. Macmillan Jersey’s Rowathon involves teams of six rowers rowing the equivalent distance from Jersey to Sark (30,000m) on an indoor rowing machine.
