The team, three Army officers and a Junior Soldier still undergoing Basic Training, were strangers to each other until united by a posting to the Army Foundation College, Harrogate. Through a shared desire for challenge and adventure, we have decided to embark on one of the ultimate tests of physical and mental fortitude – rowing 3000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean.
The Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge is an annual race from La Gomera in the Canary Islands to Antigua. In mid-December, approximately 20-30 crews will set off to row the 3000 nautical miles to Nelson's Dockyard in Antigua. The fastest crews will cross inside 5 weeks, but 100+ days at days at sea is not unusual. Fewer people have rowed the Atlantic than have climbed Everest or been to Space. Rowers race not just against the other crews, but over 40 days of rowing eating resting on a small vessel at sea, it is also against the deterioration of their bodies and minds.
