Competitors depart in transatlantic rowing challenge

Nearly 30 teams of adventurers from 12 countries around the world set off on the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge. The fleet began the life changing adventure from La Gomera in the Canary Islands, and will row 3,000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean to finish in Antigua.

Following in the footsteps of the Four Oarsmen, 2017’s winners and current World Record holders who completed the race in just 29 days, many of the intrepid teams of men and women want to earn their own place in the record books. Rowing 3,000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean, the adventurers will experience everything from tropical storms to 40ft waves and sweltering heat. They will be at sea for between 30 and 90 days.
