Scottish Ocean Rower who has held 5 Guinness World Records.

He and his crew held the world record for "longest distance rowed in 24h in an ocean rowing boat" at 118miles, is the first and thus far only in the sport ever to have held North and 'Trade Winds' (Mid Atlantic) Speed records simultaneously and to hold two speed records over two separate oceans (North Atlantic and Indian Ocean) He was brought up on a landlocked farm in his native Scottish Borders but was introduced to the ocean at an early age where he discovered ocean rowing. After a career with Brewin Dolphin Securities that spanned 17 years he did his first Ocean Row in 2005.

Brown set off solo on from Cadiz to the Caribbean on his 33rd birthday. He spent a total of 123 days at sea and covered 4278 miles. There were 4 named Storms on Brown's first voyage: Vince, Delta, Epsilon and Zeta. 2005 was the busiest hurricane season on record. Brown supported 'The Sportsman's Charity' and the Edinburgh 'One City Trust' on this voyage. Brown received a Guinness World record for being the first person to Row from Mainland Spain to the West Indies.

In the last ten years Brown has continued ocean going adventures, representing several charities, and achieved many speed records. He is a fully qualified RYA/MCA Yachtmaster and runs his own expedition and rowing services company as well as undertaking yacht deliveries throughout the world
