Force Atlantic are the official British Army team to be entered the 2019 the Talisker Whiskey Atlantic Rowing Race.

The team are all from The Army Foundation College, which is an establishment that forges soldiers and creates leaders.  It offers life changing opportunities to men and women from all walks of life, preparing them for a future where they become the Army’s leaders of tomorrow.

The team were recently featured in The Telegraph in an article that first highlighted their exploits and discussed their aim to make Kingsman Kian Helm a world record holder.

     

Whilst pushing themselves through this epic event, Kian and the team are aiming to raise awareness of social mobility opportunities available in the Army, whilst attempting to raise £100,000 for the Army Benevolent Fund to support their comrades. You can follow their progress on Facebook @Force Atlantic and their just giving page Force-Atlantic

On the 15th October, Force Atlantic will be hosting a media engagement day at Hartlepool marina.  As an upstanding member of the wider media community, they would like to invite you along to meet the team, have a look at the boat and equipment, and take the opportunity to go out on a rigid inflatable boat to see them in training on the water.  On the back of your support, their will be further opportunities for you to engage with the team in the future.
