Billy had many miles of sailing experience before rowing across the Pacific Ocean in the first Great Pacific Race in 2014 where he met Barry. Since then, Billy has rowed across the Indian Ocean with Barry in 2018, rowed across the English Channel and the Atlantic Ocean in 2020 with Alex, and across the Atlantic Ocean in 2021 to lay the foundations for the Atlantic Dash. 

Billy will be crossing the Indian Ocean again with Alex in 2022 (Covid dependent) which he says will be his last crossing, instead focussing on getting other people across in the Atlantic Dash.
