The '˜row-of-a-lifetime' is being organised by Oarsome Chance, taking racers on a lap of the harbour, from the Spinnaker Tower to Portchester Castle and Gosport's Millennium Bridge.

The Portsmouth Pull is open to anyone aged 16 or over, and no rowing experience is needed to take part.

Six teams will compete in the race, which will also raise funds for the charity's work with disadvantaged young people.
