Karen Weekes

Dr Karen Weekes became the first Irish woman to row any ocean solo in February 2022. By completing this journey she also became the 20th female in the world ever to row any ocean solo. Karen passion for the cognitive psychology behind ultra endurance is not only seen within her academic research which explores coping tools of elite ultra-endurance athletes, but also in her own long distance journeys. Examples of these endurance journeys and specific courses teaching these performance psychology strategies are seen @ KARENWEEKES.COM. For this Dark Skies event, Karen will share some of her photos, videos and stories from the Atlantic Ocean crossing, focusing particularly on her night rowing experiences.
