    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    This Christmas, we will be battling waves, blisters and fatigue and spending up to 50 days ALONE AT SEA in an attempt to become the oldest pair to row 3,000 miles across the Atlantic from the Canary Islands to Antigua. In doing so, we aim to raise thousands for charity.

    Despite only starting last August, we have already raised just over £70k and bought our boat, which is currently being built. However, we still need at least £20k to fund a significant amount of equipment, including life raft, water maker, satcomms and supplies for 50 days alone at sea.

    Your donations will help us to cover the cost of the expedition and the rest will be given to our chosen charities.

    Find out more about our chosen charities here .

    NOTE: If you would prefer to donate directly to our charities, or discuss our fantastic sponsorship opportunities please contact us directly by email hello@grandadsoftheatlantic.com

    "I fully support Neil and Peter in their extraordinary adventure. Rowing the Atlantic is an incredible challenge, not just physically, but mentally too. It requires resourcefulness, courage and determination. This is in the DNA of every Airborne soldier and does not diminish with age.

      Wishing you both the very best of luck in December. It was good to talk to you Neil at Temple Bar yesterday and I wonder what the famous Dr Samuel Johnson would have said about your challenge?

    One tough ocean - two tough grandads... Peter Ketley and Neil Young are both over 60 and neither of them have ever rowed before. Will their 40-year friendship and hard-earned Parachute Regiment 'mettle' be enough...? Find out more at www.grandadsoftheatlantic.com
