ENDURANCE ATHLETE, ADVENTURER & PUBLIC SPEAKER
Angus' passion is in adventure.
So far, his expeditions have predominantly taken shape in the field of ocean rowing, having been a leading team member in three successful ocean rowing campaigns, across two different oceans and claiming a number of records along the way.
In 2014 Angus set out for his first crossing, taking on what only a handful of people have previously achieved. Leaving from Western Australia, Angus and the Fast Row West team set out to break the Four Man record across the Indian Ocean. After 71 days at sea and being forced to change route and finish in the Seychelles, the team set a new speed record and became the youngest Four Man team to row any ocean.
In 2016, Angus skippered team Ocean Reunion and completed the Atlantic Crossing in 37 days. A new Race Record in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge. In 2017, he went on to beat this record and set a new World Record with Team Latitude 35, completing the crossing in 35 days 14 hours and 3 minutes.
These records saw Angus make it into the Guinness Book of World Records for The Fastest Four Man team to row the Atlantic, The Youngest Four Man team to row any ocean and The Youngest Person to row three oceans.
Prior to ocean rowing, Angus trekked through the heart of the Papua New Guinea rainforest, raced Tuk-Tuks across the width of India and completed ultra marathons in both Cornwall and Scotland.
Angus and his uncle, Charlie Pitcher, have built the leading ocean rowing company, Rannoch Adventure. Angus trains teams and organises expeditions for individuals and teams from around the world. More recently, Angus has skippered a boat 1,800nm around the British coastline for Rannoch and managed, taught and encouraged a team of 20 students through the South
Angus hopes to inspire people to push their physical and mental boundaries and show that with hard work and determination that anything can be possible. Through public speaking engagements, Angus aims to educate individuals and groups in leadership, teamwork and development using his experiences from his adventures and ultra endurances races.
