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.
Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge - Race Start
Tuesday 12th December 2017
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.
