The Challenge

  • The Challenge:-
  • We aim to set a new world record by rowing across the Atlantic Ocean from west to east.
  • We will set off from New York in the first available weather window in June 2020.
  • We will then row unsupported until we reach the UK Mainland.
  • We will cover a minimum of 3270 Nautical miles.
  • 52 Crews have attempted this journey from the USA to the UK (data from Ocean Rowing Society )
  • Of these 52 crews a little over 1/3rd were successful (18)
  •  The west to east route is the most difficult way to cross the Atlantic Ocean.
  • The crew will row as two teams of 3 rowers.
  • The routine on board will be 2 hours rowing followed by 2 hours resting.
  • This routine will continue 24 hours a day from our departure until we make landfall in the UK.
  • During our non-rowing down time the crew will need to complete maintenance tasks, prepare food and update social
  • media.
  • It is our intention to make this one of the most social media friendly ocean crossings ever.
  • Our intention is to blog and post content and videos on a daily basis.
  • This will raise awareness for our cause as well as for any sponsors.
  • We aim to raise funds for Team Rubicon disaster relief
