4,900 MILES OF OPEN OCEAN
Two of the 'World's Toughest Rows'
All within 1 year
WHY THESE TWO ROWS?
For the challenge and the charities
Both the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge and a circumnavigation of GB are considered to be the "World's Toughest Rows'. So what better than to be the first in the world to take on both of them within the same year.

In December 2021, Adam and Charlie departed from San Sebastian in La Gomera, Canary Islands, rowing west across the Atlantic Ocean, encompassing 1.5 million oar strokes, burning in excess of 5000 calories per day whilst battling waves the size of a bus, challenging counter-currents and hours on end of total darkness to reach the finish line at English Harbour in Antigua. They faced huge mental and physical challenges whilst competing against 35 International teams.
