The Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge brings together teams from all walks of life, to take on the challenge of crossing an ocean in a rowing boat. In mid December 2020 just under 30 teams will set off from San Sebastián de La Gomera heading for English Harbour, Antigua.

In rowing the distance, Robert and Kevin will face huge physical and mental challenges. Salt sores, sleep deprivation, muscle fatigue from the sheer repetition of the task. They will pull more than one and a half million strokes to get the finish line. The mental stresses of crossing the expanse of an ocean. For around 50 days, Robert and Kevin will row two hours on and two hours off, for 24 hours, seven days a week.
