Row the Nile in May 2022

 In RowingChat

Plan a rowing adventure and row the Nile in Egypt with expert guides Hatem Kandeel and Ayman Kamal.

01:00 Hateem Kandeel’s rowing background with the Arab Contractors Rowing Team
I wanted to row from Aswan to the Mediterranean
04:00 I have no problem rowing for hours on the erg for 4-5 hours. People told me I couldn’t do a long row like this.
06:00 2021 was my planned date for the row. The Nile can be very rough so I planned to use a coastal boat. I started on 1 June 2021 and it took 23 days and 5 stops to get to Cairo. Then 9 days from there to the sea.
08:00 The Environment Minister asked me to be an ambassador for the environment around the Nile. I got on TV and the news.
The goal was awareness of the care of the river and the health of the people.
09:30 The theme for 2022 is Social Responsibility for the Nile Row.
Three goals
1 – Never pollute the Nile. Take the oath. Change the mindset of people
2 – Help Egyptians understand their history using NFTs technology. With a revenue share with the Tourism industry via government.
3 – Spread rowing around the country. Rowing is the official sport for Aswan Province now.
We are also talking to UN Women to support women and rowing.
14:00 We plan to make Row the Nile an annual event around new year’s time
During 2022 it will be done twice – once in May and once in December – January 2023. Hatem is inviting masters to join him on the May event.
The section from Aswan to Luxor focuses on ancient Egyptian history with stops at historic monuments.
20:00 Ayman Kamal is the organiser of the event.

Using coastal sculling boats.
31:00 We want to use rowing to connect people worldwide.
