In December 2023 Atlantic R2R will embark on a unique and life changing expedition - to row 3000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean unaided - from La Gomera, Canary Islands to English Harbour, Antigua as part of the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge.
Competing in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge is not ‘just’ a 3000-mile row across the Atlantic Ocean, but a 3-year operation of meticulous planning and preparation. As well as the obvious physical and mental preparation that will have to be undertaken, the team will also be tasked with hundreds of hours of fundraising, logistical and event planning as well as preparing the boat and all necessary safety equipment needed to make their crossing as fast and safe as possible!
This website will introduce you to the team, the challenge, the cause as well as the opportunities associated with the mission. Your sponsorship could make this challenge a reality!
Thank you for considering partnering with Atlantic R2R
Seb, Tom, Jordan, Richard and Paul.
