3,000 MILES ACROSS THE OCEAN

The world's toughest rowing race

It’s happening on 12th December 2021

SO WHAT IS THE

Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge

Dubbed the "World's toughest rowing race" the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge is a gruelling
3000 mile unaided ocean row across the Atlantic from La Gomera to Antigua. To date, more people have climbed Everest than have rowed an ocean. During the row we were closer to astronauts on the International Space Station than someone on land.

In December 2021 Adam and Charlie departed from San Sebastian in La Gomera, Canary Islands, rowing around 1.5 million strokes, battling rogue waves and lost a total of 20kg between them to reach the finish line at English Harbour in Antigua. They faced huge mental and physical challenges whilst competing against 35 international teams, becoming the first married couple in the world to complete the race.
