THROUGH THE HATCH
December 2023 is the start of become Atlantic's row, unassisted, from San Sebastien de la Gomera to English Harbour, Antigua.
It will take between 30 and 50 days rowing in 2 hour shifts, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This equates to the crew taking over 1.5 million oar strokes each, burning 5000 calories per day and consuming 10 litres of water per day.
become Atlantic will endure salt sores, dehydration and sleep deprivation. Waves in the 2022 race reached up to 10m resulting in regular capsizing and subsequent technical issues.
But there is an epic reward.
