ATLANTIC CHALLENGE

Our 3,000 mile row
across the Atlantic
starts in

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 20ft 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.

“More people have climbed Everest than have rowed an ocean”

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.

During the row we will
Take over 1.5 million rowing strokes
Each burn over 5000 calories per day
Experience waves up to 20ft high
Row for 2 hours and sleep for 2 hours, constantly, 24 hours a day
Each lose an average of 12kg

Ergo Marathons

https://youtu.be/eOtzO7otFeY We enjoyed our first World in a Day event so much we agreed to do it again this week, but this time some of the participating rowers online suggested that doing only 20 miles when just another 6 would take you to a full marathon was just a wasted opportunity! The response from our…
