The Worlds Toughest Rowing Race

Raised by 38 people in 33 months
After we successfully completed the North Pole in 2013 we are now taking on "The World's Toughest Row". 3000 nautical miles across the Atlantic ocean in nothing more than a small rowing boat measuring 7 meters by 2 meters.

It’s no surprise then that more people have travelled into space, or climbed Everest than have rowed the Atlantic. It takes a certain kind of person to keep going when faced with blisters, salt rash, sharks and sleep deprivation... That’s why the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge is one of the toughest races on earth.

Never has there been a team of 3 competing to row across the Atlantic  before; however in December 2016 we will be the first along with a team from USA to be the first and at the same time set a New World Record!!!

Help us to not only beat the American's to the World Record but support our choosen Charity Barnados whom help disadvantaged children in the UK.

As you can guess the challenge starts well before we get to the starting line, training, building the boat, equipment, travel costs, etc and this is where you guys can help. Once we have covered all our cost every penny we raise will go straight to our choosen charity Barnados.

Our race starts now.... any donation would be very much apreciated however you can join the A-Team for just £200 and we add your name or company name to our boat.  This race will attract a lot of press and TV coverage world wide and with the added benefit of a friendly competition against the American's just made it that little bit more exciting. 

I would like to say a BiG Thank you from all three of us Andy's and look forward to sharing our jouney....

Everything is possible...

Our boat is in the process of being built, we hope to have it ready by May so we can start to get some serious training in on the ocean. We have yet to come up with any names for her...
