Former SAS soldier, Paratrooper and Adventurer Tom McClean is an accomplished and entertaining speaker with many remarkable stories to tell.

Tom speaks about his daring and remarkable Life of Adventure, attempting the impossible, achieving the incredible; he continues to make world news with his extraordinary feats of daring and endurance, which include five epic lone Atlantic voyages in unusual crafts and an intrepid expedition to reclaim Rockall for Britain.

Tom speaks about how, at the age of 26, in 1969 he became internationally famous for being the first person ever to row across the North Atlantic Ocean single handed from Canada to Ireland as he navigated his way across in an open wooden rowing boat using only a sextant. Using his experience as a survivor and with no previous knowledge of sea conditions, he completed this record-breaking ordeal in just 70 hard days.

The ultimate challenge was when Tom, aged 44 years rowed again across the Atlantic alone. Tom heaved his way from Canada to the Bishop’s Rock Lighthouse in a 20’ open rowing boat; he survived his boat turning upside down in the middle of the night in 50ft waves, emptying essential equipment into the ocean. He successfully re-captured the Transatlantic rowing record for Britain after 54 hard days at sea.

Tom has inspired his audiences and spoken at many after dinner engagements and leading company conferences throughout the UK and Europe over the past 20 years.
