Planet Platforms Gives Yorkshire Rows a Step-Up

09 July 2015

Wakefield manufacturer, Planet Platforms, has supplied the Yorkshire Rows crew with a set of purpose built steps to help visitors view “Rose” their boat.

The team of four mums are taking part in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge in December this year which is billed as the toughest rowing race on earth. If they complete their 3000 nautical mile journey they will become the oldest crew to do so.

As part of their fundraising Niki, Frances, Janette and Helen are taking Rose to a number of events throughout the Yorkshire region.

Planet Platforms, who are one of their key sponsors, designed and manufactured the steps to replace the wooden crates they were previously using.
