'Be prepared for the long haul'
Not many people get business ideas in an open boat in the middle of the Indian Ocean.
But it was during a rowing expedition from Australia to Africa that Jamie Douglas-Hamilton discovered something: fresh water mixed with sea water is more refreshing than fresh water alone. That is because sea water contains a huge amount of alkaline salts which the body needs.
