Unfortunately the Atlantic six have taken the decision to abandon our challenge.
There are a number of reasons for this. Despite the input of significant personal funds by crew members we found it a genuine struggle to secure the funding required to undertake a challenge of this size. This led to inevitable delays and uncertainty with the project. These delays caused issues with many crew members many of whom were unable to continue to commit to the project for a range of reasons.
The remaining crew members (Neil Blackeby, Andy Warner and Jakup Jacobsen) have set up an entirely new venture. I’m sure that in due course they will appear on social media asking for your support. If you wish to follow or support them then I’m sure that any one of them will welcome contact.
All corporate sponsors who donated to our campaign have been contacted and offered a return of funds. Best of luck to Andy, Jakup and Neil with their new campaign. We will watch them from the shore.
