In January 2024 Sergeant Phil Angus, Sergeant Dan Martin, Corporal Gary Binns and Corporal Justin Wallace of the RAF Regiment, will be rowing 3200 miles across the Atlantic Ocean from Lanzarote to Antigua, pushing the boundaries of what’s physically and mentally possible!
Taking part in this challenge will not only require an insane level of physical fitness and endurance, but an extremely high level of mental resilience and a constant will to succeed throughout the 40+ days in this unknown and arduous environment. We truly believe overcoming challenges throughout life, whether it be a physical or mental challenges, enhances you as an individual and allows you to grow as a person.
Your support will allow us to purchase vital kit and equipment required for the challenge, which will ultimately enable us to raise money for 5 amazing charities in the process, The Centurion Fund, The Veterans Charity, Mental Health Research UK, Tough Enough to Care and SSAFA, all of which are extremely close to our hearts and we each have our own specific reasons for choosing these charities.
Note - Anyone who donates over £25 will have their name or family name printed and displayed on the boat for the duration of our training and the challenge itself.
