The Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge 2013

The challenge begins on 2nd December 2013 when the brave and intrepid will pit themselves against the elements and race the 3,000 miles from La Gomera in the Canary Islands to Antigua.

The boats are just seven metres long and two metres wide, and will be the rowers’ homes for 40-50 days, where they will row in two-hour shifts enduring blisters, salt rashes and sleep deprivation.

More people have been into space than have rowed the Atlantic, and it is rightly considered as one of the toughest challenges on the planet.

The Atlantic Challenge is proudly supported by TALISKER Whisky, the only single malt from the Isle of Skye.
