3000 Miles. 60+ Days. 4 Men. 1 Boat.
It’s no surprise that more people have been into space, or climbed Everest than have rowed the Atlantic. It takes a certain kind of person to keep going when faced with exhaustion, hallucination, blisters, salt rashes, sharks and sleep deprivation. That’s why the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge is one of the toughest races on earth.
We will row more than 3000 miles, setting off from San Sebastien, La Gomera, across the untamed seas of the Atlantic, finishing in Nelson's Dockyard English Harbour, Antigua. Once out on the ocean, we'll be on our own and at the mercy of mother nature and her elements. We aim to become members of a small community of friends that have shared the adventures and dangers of an ocean rowing crossing. The mental and physical endurance will result in a life changing achievement and we welcome you to share in our journey and progress all in aid of a fantastic cause, the Multiple Sclerosis Trust.

'The greatest danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it.'
Meet the team
We are four friends who met at the University of Birmingham. We want to push ourselves to the limit, achieve something truly epic and raise as much money for the MS Trust as possible.
