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.

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

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.
