More people have climbed Everest or been into space
than have rowed the Atlantic.
The Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge will see Heads Together and Row compete in an unsupported 3000 mile rowing race from San Sebastian in the Canary Islands to English Harbour, Antigua.
Organised by Atlantic Campaigns, the race is estimated to take between 40 and 90 days the crew will row in pairs in two hour shifts around the clock. The 24’ x 6’ boat will carry all the required equipment (and spares), food and a water maker turning sea water into drinking water.
As well as the gruelling shift pattern causing sleep deprivation, the crew will face blisters, saltwater sores, seasickness and bruised and battered bodies all while being at the mercy of the elements which could result in 40ft waves, 40˙ heat, hurricane strength winds and capsize.
This mental and physical challenge will be a life-changing experience.
