Nicki has always been adventurous and loves sport and being outdoors. Influenced by her grandad who travelled extensively and returned with tales of his adventures, she was determined to travel and have adventures of her own. Living and working on a Kibbutz was her first adventure of many, and when asked if she’d like to raise money for local charities by shark cage diving, white water rafting or jumping out of an aeroplane she always said ‘why not?’.
Nicki discovered her love of rowing when she joined Eton Excelsior Rowing Club (EERC) in 2015 and was immediately hooked, also joining Trafford Rowing Club (TRC) so she could continue to get her rowing fix whilst visiting family and friends. She can usually be found either on the River Thames or the Bridgewater Canal.
Sadly, Nicki’s dad lost his battle with cancer at the end of 2020. He
was extremely proud that she could do anything she set her mind to and,
having taken time out to help with his care, she is now ready to put
her energy into something positive. When asked if she’d like to join
Caroline and Rachel to row the Atlantic she jumped at the chance to
raise money for an organisation that helps individuals in similar
situations as Nicki and her family found themselves.
