More people have been into space or climbed Everest than have rowed the Atlantic.

Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge 2017

Crossing the Atlantic is never an easy undertaking, but people have been making the journey for hundreds of years. The very first crossings were made to discover and explore new lands. Today, most crossings are made by huge cargo ships exporting essential commodities across the ocean.

But some daring people choose to cross the Atlantic to test the limit of their physical and mental strength; to achieve something unthinkable.

The idea of the Atlantic Challenge race came to Sir Chay Blyth whilst he was rowing the Atlantic Ocean in 1966 with John Ridgeway. It was a 92 day battle against hurricanes, 50 foot waves and near starvation.

It’s no surprise then that more people have been into space, or climbed Everest than have rowed the Atlantic. It takes a certain kind of person to keep going when faced with the intense heat, salt blisters, sharks and sleep deprivation.

We are rowing 3,000 miles for men everywhere.

Team Nuts are taking on this challenge in aid of The Movember Foundation, a global charity committed to men living happier, healthier, longer lives. With every member of Team Nuts having been directly or indirectly affected by the causes Movember stands for - testicular cancer, prostate cancer, mental health and suicide prevention.

It is because of these reasons why we are proud to support and raise £100,000 for the Movember Foundation.

Atlantic Campaigns SL is a Spanish company situated in San Sebastian de La Gomera. After taking over the organising of the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge in 2012, we have led the race forward to become the safest and most successful ocean rowing race on the Planet! Talisker is the only Single Malt Whisky made on the Isle of Skye, one of the most remote, rugged, yet beautiful landscapes in Scotland. Few whiskies tell the story of their origins better than those crafted at this distillery. It’s because of Talisker’s relationship with the sea that we’re proud to be behind the world’s toughest row – The Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge.
