JOIN OUR JOURNEY
As we endeavor to achieve ‘The World’s Toughest Row’ we will become the world’s first married couple to row from San Sebastian, La Gomera, Spain to Antigua & Barbuda. In addition, we will take the title of the first Australian pairs, and couple, to row across the Atlantic Ocean.
We will be met with endless challenges and triumphs as we reach each milestone steering us towards the start line in La Gomera, for the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge 2020. Following on, we will endure: sleep deprivation; fatigue; mental exertion; and solidarity; surrounded by endless views of ocean, in order to achieve 3000 miles of ocean rowing across the Atlantic to reach our destination, Antigua!
Connect with us through our social media avenues to share in our venture through regular blogs, as we:
Source a boat
Undertake extensive physical and psychological training
Complete the mandatory requirements in order qualify for the challenge:
120 compulsory rowing hours, 24 hours in darkness
RYA safety courses
Ocean rowing course
Undertake boat, equipment and supplies inspections
Build awareness and sponsorship
Completing the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge is no easy feat. No amount of physical training or mental preparation will ensure our attendance at the start line in La Gomera. It is through your generosity that we will be able to achieve our goal.
“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”
By accomplishing this challenge, and teaming with Soldier On we aim to inspire and motivate others to change their perception of their dreams and believe in themselves, so they too can strive to achieve ideas they once regarded to be dreams too far out of reach.
Major Sponsors - Advertising Space
Major donations will be accompanied with prime advertising space on our boat ‘Boar Tru’, providing local/national and global brand exposure throughout the race, as well as pre-race campaigns. Images of our boat will be displayed on all our social media sites with opportunities to display in alternative media forms. Click here for further information on advertising through sponsorship.
Goods in Kind
If you would like to help us fund the row by supporting the purchase of the equipment rather than cash donations or sponsorship then please nominate which piece of equipment you would like to buy, part-purchases are also welcome. Our progress on reaching the funding targets for each item will be readily updated. Click here to view items for purchase.
