As a team of four, Hugo Thompson, John Morgan, Joel Wood and Monty Williams are taking part in the 2017 Talisker Whiskey Atlantic Challenge. This Challenge is WORLD'S toughest rowing race and is a distance of 5000km rowed from the Canary Islands across the Atlantic ocean to the Caribbean Island of Antigua. The race will take between 40 and 90 days to complete whilst the team will face 40ft waves, storms, salt sores, hunger, sleep deprivation and the occasional shark. We will be rowing and sleeping in alternate 2 hour shifts 24 hours a day until we reach our destination. 

The event will raise £50,000 for Diabetes UK being a charity close to the hearts of all four team members. 

Before the rowing can start, we need a boat. The boats come in different materials (ply wood or carbon fibre) are are (obviously) a vital part of the event. A boat will cost in the realms of £15,000 and will be sold after the event, the money all going to Diabetes UK.

Please help us in this amazing adventure.
