A challenge that will take me more than 3000 Miles west from San Sebastian in La Gomera, Canary Islands, Spain (28oN 18oW) to Nelson’s Dockyard, English Harbour, Antigua & Barbuda (17oN 61oW).
The annual race starts on December 12, with up to 45 teams participating from around the world.
World's Toughest Row - Atlantic brings together teams from all walks of life united by the same objective: To take on the unique challenge of crossing an ocean in a rowing boat.cross
- The new Race Record for Female Solo rowers: 59 days, 16 hours and 36 minutes
- The World Record: 40 days, 21 hours and 1 minute
All teams battle with sleep deprivation, salt sores and physical extremes inflicted by the race.
Rowers are left with their own thoughts, an expanse of the ocean and the job of getting the boat safely to the other side.
The mental and physical endurance will result in a life-changing achievement, that will never be forgotten.
