Leicester-based rower Nicola Cheesman is looking for two more crew members to join her all-women team to  take part in a round Britain race.
The 36-year-old from Ashby is the skipper of a crew which will take part in the world's richest rowing race in June.
Ms Cheesman already has three female colleagues in her team but wants to boost the crew's numbers to six.
GB Row 2013 is a gruelling 2,000-mile non-stop race around the coast of mainland Britain, which begins on June 1 at Tower Bridge in London.
It will feature more than a dozen crews competing for a bounty of £100,000, which would be awarded to the first team to beat the existing world record of 26 days to complete the tortuous race.
The teams - made up of two, four or eight oarsmen and women - will row non-stop and unassisted from London, around Land's End, up to John O'Groats and back to the capital. Find out more about the GB Row 2013 at www.gbrowchallenge.com
