Weʼre raising £4,125 to Stronger Twogether - Ocean Rowing Mixed Pairs Married Couple - Taking part in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge 2022

Don't have time to donate right now?


December 2022, our dynamic duo, Midlands (UK) based married mixed pair crew 'Stronger Twogether ' comprising of Jooles and Ian Paillin-Dean are taking part in the annual 'World's Toughest Row' the TALISKER WHISKY ATLANTIC CHALLENGE .

On December 12th 2022 (Jooles's birthday) 'Stronger Twogether' will compete with up to 40 teams participating from around the world including this year remarkably, two other couples. They will have to cope with blisters, salt rashes, sleep deprivation and rowing in two-hour shifts around the clock for weeks on end, facing all the raw elements of the Atlantic Ocean. The boat will be just seven meters long and under two meters wide, with only a small cabin for protection against storms. All boats are equipped at the race start, and cannot take help, food or water and can only be repaired by the crew themselves during the crossing. They will endeavour to row across the Atlantic, unassisted, for what could be anywhere between 45 - 55 days. This is a challenge less commonly achieved than that of summiting Mnt Everest, with more people going to space, than rowing the Atlantic ocean.

There are many reasons we want to row an ocean but one we share in common is the desire to push ourselves beyond perceived physical and mental limitations, to wonder at the vast and beautiful ocean and stars and to raise money for two charities close to the crew's hearts. LOROS a local hospice charity who cared for Ian's mum when she needed end of life care and Community HeartBeat the national leading Defib charity supporting communities across the UK with fundraising, training and maintenance of the publicly available defibs you see in telephone boxes & sports clubs. We would love to raise enough money to fund specific project such as providing defibs for the RNLI and then go on to provide these life saving devices for small theatres and smaller rowing clubs reflecting our personal passions.
