Rowing 3000 miles unsupported
across the Atlantic Ocean
We’re rowing across the Atlantic Ocean in December 2021. Our crew of 5 will be rowing in 2-hour shifts, 24 hours a day for over a month as we race other crews in the 2021 Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, chirpily described as “The World’s Toughest Rowing Race”. We will be rowing unsupported, carrying all of our food and supplies on board, and face up to 40ft waves, sleep deprivation and using a bucket as a toilet.
Why? It’s the sort of challenge we all dream of completing. It’s a physical test of endurance and stamina. More so it’s a mental test of resilience in the face of danger, claustrophobia and tedium. It’s the sort of opportunity most people don’t get or won’t risk, and we’re grabbing it with both hands.

We’re also rowing to raise money for Reverse Rett – a charity dedicated to changing the lives of those suffering with Rett Syndrome; a neurological condition that’s having a profound effect on the family of one of our crew. Find out more about Reverse Rett on the charity page.
We need your help to do this. If you have a company or business who would like to become a Corporate Sponsor please check out the sponsorship packages we have available. If you would like to make a personal contribution you can either become a Stowaway or join our Shore Crew by donating to our Go Fund Me fundraising page.

I suppose by now we thought we’d be able to get out and train together in the same boat or gym. To be honest we’d take training in the same garden right now! We’ve started using a great online platform called Ergworld which lets us link up our rowing machine monitors and train together virtually,…

Reverse Rett is our chosen charity as you know, and they host an annual fundraising dinner at this time of year. Ordinarily this is in a fancy London venue and everyone gets dressed up for an evening’s food, entertainment and enriching spirits. This year they decided to take this party online rather than cancel it…
