CANARIES TO CARIBBEAN
A 3000 nautical mile row across the Atlantic from La Gomera to Antigua as part of the Talisker Whiskey Atlantic Challenge.
The Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge is, without a doubt, the worlds toughest rowing race.
The idea came to Sir Chay Blyth whilst he was rowing the Atlantic Ocean in 1966 with John Ridgeway. It was a 92 day battle against hurricanes, 50 foot waves and near starvation.
It’s no surprise that more people have been into space, or climbed Everest than have rowed the Atlantic.
It takes a certain kind of person to keep going when faced with salt rash, sharks and sleep deprivation.
WHEN IS IT?
We will be taking part in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge in December 2019.
Although 2019 sounds a long time away, you can imagine an adventure of this scale not only takes a lot of preparation and hard work but also a lot of time. We only have until 2019 to reach our target for both corporate funding and charity donations, whilst getting physically and mentally strong. There's a lot to do but if anyone can do it, we can - with your help.
Physically, it will be relentless. 2 hours rowing then 2 hours rest whilst the other rows for 2 hours. Day and night, Non-stop until we reach Antigua. Our bodies will change and become weak but our minds will have to stay strong especially if we want to win our pairs category - which we do!
