Atlantic Assault Row 2024

Donation protected
Who are we?

Atlantic Assault isn't just a team; we're a diverse and dedicated group of individuals bound by a shared purpose and an unwavering spirit. Our mission is to row across the Atlantic Ocean in December 2024 to raise vital funds for the Royal Marines Charity, an organization committed to supporting Marines, veterans, and their families.


The Challenge

Mission Atlantic is the world’s toughest row. Unlike other row race events, the team are completely isolated without any support vessels close by. This race therefore is classed as an unsupported row. The annual race begins in early December, with up to 4 teams participating from around the world. It is a non-stop 3000 nautical mile voyage in a 7m long rowing boat from the start point of Gran Canaria, Canary Islands to the finish point in Barbados, The Caribbean. The Atlantic Assault team will attempt to complete the journey in around 50 days, on a punishing shift pattern: working in pairs, 2 hours on, 2 hours off, day and night, 7 days a week. Throughout the team battle with sleep deprivation, salt sores, Atlantic storms, busy shipping lanes and physical extremes inflicted by the race. Rowers are left with their own thoughts, an expanse of ocean and the job of getting the boat safely to the other side.


Where will the money go?

Part of our mission is to raise over £100,000 for The Royal Marines Charity, and we will be launching a large public fundraising campaign to achieve this. However, we are faced with a baseline cost of £40,000 to get to the start line, a cost we will be covering through our corporate sponsorships. This includes:

Paying for the boat
Freight costs for the boat to the start and back from the finish
Mandated safety equipment and tracking devices
Registration with the Ocean Rowing Society
SAR and medical insurance
Registration of boat and emergency equipment plus radio licenses
24/7 medical consultancy and land based support teams
Weather routing and forecasting
Mooring the boat at the start and finish

Without these, our mission is not possible.

Once the campaign is fully funded, all money from sponsorship will be going straight to our charities.
