Story

THE BRISTOL GULLS

We are four Bristol based girls taking part in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge 2020, a 3000 miles ocean rowing challenge, unsupported, crossing from La Gomera, in the Canary Islands, to Antigua, in the Caribbean.

(If you want to find out more about the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, watch the promotional video for the 2019 race .)

Our mission?

To promote a safe and healthy relationship with our global waters.

Our aim?

To complete the crossing in the most sustainable way possible.

How?

*By building an Eco Boat in partnership with Rannoch Adventures - this will be the 1st ever Eco Boat to take part in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge! *By looking at alternative packaging that we'll be taking on board (food, cosmetics, personal hygiene products…) and by exploring alternatives and sustainable fabrics the kit we'll wear (ie. Econyl)

Where will your donations go?

Rowing across the ocean is hard, but much harder is doing it in an eco-friendly manner. We need to raise £150,000 to be able to cover all our costs: Boat £££££, Shipping £££, Equipment £££, Food ££, Training ££, Travel ££, Kit ££, Insurance ££

We will aim to recover the majority of this money post race by re-selling our boat and equipment, and that money will ultimately go to the two local charities we are supporting Clean Up Bristol Harbour and the RNLI Portishead .

In return?

Your donation to the campaign will give you the benefits of having your name displayed on The Gulls' Club page on our website.

Donations of £100 or more will be recognised with your name printed on the boat.

Nous sommes 4 jeunes femmes de Bristol (UK) et nous allons participer à la « Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge 2020 »: Une course de 5000 km à la rame à travers l’Océan Atlantique depuis La Gomera aux Îles Canaries jusqu’à Antigua aux Caraïbes. (Si vous voulez plus de détails sur cette course nous vous invitons à regarder la vidéo promotionnelle de 2018)

NOTRE BUT Effectuer la traversée de manière la plus en accord avec le développement durable afin de promouvoir et sensibiliser davantage au problème de la pollution de déchets plastiques et favoriser une relation saine et sans danger avec nos océans.

COMMENT ? En construisant un bateau écologique en partenariat avec Rannoch Adventures. Ce sera le tout premier bateau de ce type à prendre le départ dans ‘La Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge’. Puis en envisageant toutes les solutions les plus en accord avec notre mission de protection de l’environnement pour ce qui concerne notre ravitaillement, l’équipement du bateau et nos vêtements.

OU VONT VOS DONS ? Traverser un océan à la rame c’est dur mais il est encore plus dur de le faire en respectant notre Planète. Nous devons atteindre 165 000 € pour pouvoir couvrir tous nos frais : le bateau sa livraison et son équipement, notre nourriture, notre entraînement, le voyage et les assurances. Notre but est de récupérer, après la course, la majorité de cet argent en revendant notre bateau et son équipement. La totalité de la somme sera donnée aux 2 associations locales que nous soutenons : Clean Up Bristol Harbour et The RNI Portishead.
