OUR TEAM

MEET ATLANTIC R2R

Atlantic R2R is made up of two best friends, an ex-solider and serving soldier, and a father and son, who both work in the hospitality industry. Three of the team live on the Isle of Skye and one in Fort Augustus. They all hold in common a drive, competitiveness and will to find and test their physical and mental limits. The majority of the team living within a 20 minute drive of Talisker Distillery the main title sponsor of the event what better place to test and push these limits than the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge!

 

Although the team come from various backgrounds, the combined qualities, skills and experiences of each team member makes for an exciting, cohesive and competitive ocean rowing team and provides an amazing opportunity to raise money and awareness for their chosen mental health organisation Rock2Recovery.
