THE TALISKER WHISKY ATLANTIC CHALLENGE
Organised by Atlantic Campaigns, the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge comprises of a 3000 miles, 5556km, backbreaking, journey across the Atlantic Ocean.
Early December 2020, we will leave San Sebastian in La Gomera, Canary Islands, Spain, heading west whilst undertaking a solid routine, alternating between two hours rowing two hours rest, constantly and unsupported for 24 hours per day to Nelson’s Dockyard, English Harbour, Antigua & Barbuda.
We will complete:
In excess of 1.5 million oar strokes over a race
Burn over 5000 calories per day, while trying to consume 10 litres of water each day
Lose approximately 12kg during the entirety of the row
Use the toilet facilities (a bucket) in front of each other – lucky we are married
Withstand up to 20ft high waves
No wonder more people have climbed Mt Everest than rowed an ocean!
