We are a 24 hour search & rescue service to save lives at sea


Too many people are still drowning. More than ever we need the RNLI’s help. As a charity, the RNLI depends on our donations so it can go on saving lives and keeping us and our loved ones safe. RNLI lifesavers are our lifeline. They’re the lifeboat crews who provide 24-hour search and rescue right around the UK and Ireland. The lifeguards keeping watch on 240 of the busiest beaches in the UK and Channel Islands. And the RNLI safety teams and educators working tirelessly to stop people getting into trouble in the first place.Thank you.


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.


*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)
