THE TALISKER WHISKY
With no rowing experience behind them, the Buoys are setting themselves the ‘ideal’ target of completing the challenge in under 38 days, to beat the current ‘fastest four in a pure boat to cross the Atlantic’ record, set by the Atlantic 4 in the 2017 event. But they also want to enjoy every second of their epic voyage, seeing the amazing sea life, the beautiful clear skies as they’ve never seen them before and the opportunity to catch fish, laugh, swim and cherish the unique experience. With this is mind, their more realistic target is 40 to 45 days.
Finally and crucially, the Buoys hope to raise as much as possible in sponsorship and donations so that the campaign costs are recouped and their chosen charities receive maximum benefit from the campaign.
