Alex Gregory MBE is a two time Olympic Gold medallist, five time World champion and World record holder for the Great Britain Men's Rowing team. In August 2017 he took part in The Polar Row, a pioneering Arctic rowing expedition where he and his crew successfully forged a route across un-rowed Arctic waters, breaking numerous world records in the process. Alex has now retired from competitive sport and his three children Jasper, Daisy and Jesse have been a huge motivation for him pursuing another passion of his, living and experiencing the outdoors and well as inspiring others through motivational speaking. As a proud patron of the British Exploring society, Alex is intent on sharing his knowledge, experience, and the fantastic benefits that time outdoors brings to the whole family.
"I've got four girls under eight and this is brilliant. It's a really handy book for dads, showing how to build a raft or an insect trap. I built a Viking boat recently out of wood. It's a very good antidote to the iPad' Jimmy Doherty, Daily Express
