Force Genesis are taking on The World's Toughest Row - the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge 2020. 

Amy Wood, Will Cogley, Mark Sealey & Gemma Best

In 1966, Sir Chay Blyth and John Ridgeway performed their legendary open-boat row across the Atlantic Ocean in English Rose III. The trip took 92 days and it laid the foundation for the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge. Since 1997 this ocean rowing race has attracted the brave and intrepid to pit themselves against the elements and race the 3000 miles from La Gomera, Canary Islands, to English Harbour, Antigua. More people have been into space than have rowed the Atlantic Ocean, and it is rightly considered to be one of the toughest challenges on the planet.

Force Genesis will row 2 hours on, 2 hours off for 24 hours a day; facing 40ft waves, dehydration and hallucinations. They will carry everything they needed for 55 days at sea and cannot receive help or support from external sources, unless in life-threatening danger. Force Genesis will be taking on the enormity of the Atlantic Ocean to raise money for volunteer Blood Bikers, Devon Freewheelers.
