Rowing across the Atlantic is one of the most extreme challenges humans can undertake. The challenge is to row 3,000 miles un-assisted across the second largest ocean on the planet, from Tenerife, Canary Islands to Barbados.
More people have been to space
than have rowed the Atlantic.
What we will face
At its deepest, the Atlantic Ocean is 8.5km/5.28 miles deep.
An 8m boat, 2 cabins, 4 mates in 106.5 million km² of Ocean.
The waves we will experience can measure up to 60ft high.
We could face whales, sharks, marlins and more while at sea.
What we will go through
We will row for 2 hours, and sleep for 2 hours, constantly, 24 hours a day for roughly 40 days.
We will row in excess of 1.5 million oar strokes over a race.
We each need to aim to consume 10 litres of water per day.
We will burn in excess of 10,000 calories per day. With a typical individual weight loss of 12kg.
We will each lose on average 12kg crossing the Atlantic!
There is no toilet on board – hello bucket!
In addition to epic 60ft waves, the fear of capsizing and over a month without private bathroom breaks. A world record is at stake on this epic adventure:
