Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge - Race Start

San Sebastián, La Gomera

The start of the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge 2017; we will head west from San Sebastian in La Gomera (28oN 18oW) to Nelson’s Dockyard English Harbour, Antigua (17oN 61oW). Once we leave the safety of the harbour we’ll be on our own, on the vast ocean and at the mercy of the elements.

From the sunsets and sunrises to the wildlife that will be encountered first hand – the race offers different experiences to all those involved. Our boat is 9 meters long and just under 2 metres wide, with only a small cabin for protection against storms.

Our boat is equipped at the race start, and we cannot accept any repair, help or food and water during the crossing. There is a constant battle of sleep deprivation, salt sores and the physical extremes that the row will inflict.

Once the safe haven and party atmosphere of port is left behind – we are left with our own thoughts, an expanse of the ocean and the job of getting the boat safely to the other side. It’s now our world. A basic existence leaving behind the memories and smells of land and dealing with the emotions of leaving loved ones behind. The focus changes to your teammate, watch systems and knowing everything there is to know about our rowing boat.

Harbourside

Bristol Harbour is the harbour in the city of Bristol, England. The harbour covers an area of 70 acres.
