"Help Us To Help Others"
THE WORLD’S TOUGHEST ROW - MORE PEOPLE HAVE BEEN INTO SPACE OR CLIMBED EVEREST THAN HAVE ROWED THE ATLANTIC.
We are four ordinary chaps, all in our fifties, who are relishing the physical and mental challenge of rowing 3,000 miles across the Atlantic in December 2019. We have all served for at least 20 years in the military and share bonds of friendship through playing rugby together over many years. We all consider ourselves extremely fortunate to be able to even consider attempting such an adventure at this stage in our lives. Rather than dashing off to buy a sports car, we want to push ourselves to our physical and mental limits and achieve something quite incredible. We want to give something back and inspire others to achieve the seemingly impossible.
It’s no surprise that more people have been into space, or climbed Everest than have rowed the Atlantic, it is a huge challenge. Rowing the 3,000 miles across the Atlantic in 45 days will test the limit of our physical and mental strength to achieve something unthinkable and remarkable. It takes a certain kind of person to keep going when faced with blisters, salt rash, sharks and sleep deprivation.
That’s why the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge is the world’s toughest row.
