Story

In December 2023 Atlantic R2R will embark on a unique and life changing expedition - to row 3000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean unaided - from La Gomera, Canary Islands to English Harbour, Antigua as part of the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge.

In order to participate in this challenge we need to fundraise £75,000 to purchase a RX45 racing boat. This will then be donated to the charity in order to put a Veteran team in to continue to race and raise money for the next ten years.

Competing in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge is not ‘just’ a 3000-mile row across the Atlantic Ocean, but a 3-year operation of meticulous planning and preparation. As well as the obvious physical and mental preparation that will have to be undertaken, the team will also be tasked with hundreds of hours of fundraising, logistical and event planning as well as preparing the boat and all necessary safety equipment needed to make their crossing as fast and safe as possible!

The team members were working on improving coordination, sequencing and stroke over a 10k distance. Speaking on the session team member Tom Atkinson added: "Great session tonight. Our technique is really starting to come together. It is brilliant having a coach such as Natasha with Olympic experience working with us and we are certainly seeing the benefit!"
