THE TALISKER WHISKY ATLANTIC CHALLENGE

 

The Race:

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!
