In December 2021 we will be joining crews from all over the world to compete in the premier event in ocean rowing. The Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge will see us row over 3,000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean from San Sebastian in La Gomera to Nelson's Dockyard in Antigua & Barbuda.
We will battle with sleep deprivation, salt sores, and physical extremes inflicted by the race. Left with just our own thoughts, an expanse of the ocean and the job of getting the boat safely to the other side.
In July 2018 Saf walked into Vesta Rowing Club with the hopes of learning to row and making new friends. This is where she met VC, who was coaching the squad. Neither imagined that a year later they would be going from river to ocean rowing by entering the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge!
Atlantic rowing will take their ambitions to the extreme while also doing some pretty awesome fundraising.
