The annual Talisker Atlantic Challenge race, the world's premier ocean rowing event, will take the 30 crews on a 3000 mile journey from San Sebastian in La Gomera, Canary Islands, to Nelson’s Dockyard, English Harbour, Antigua & Barbuda. As Official Timing Partner to the event, Bremont will be presenting the winning crew with their very own Bremont timepieces.
The Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge brings together teams from all walks of life united by the same objective: to take on the unique challenge of crossing an ocean in a rowing boat and to raise money for charity (over £5m has been raised in the last 4 races). Teams battle with sleep deprivation (2 hours sleep, 2 hours rowing, 24 hours a day for over a month!), salt sores, and physical extremes inflicted by the race. With each rower rowing in excess of 1.5 million strokes in waves reaching 20 ft, it’s no wonder more people have climbed Everest than rowed the Atlantic. There's no doubt this will test each of the teams to the limits.
