My story

[p]Thanks for taking the time to visit Bucks Buoys' Virgin Money Giving page, raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support.[/p][p]In December 2019, four ‘Oar-dinary’ boys from Bucks are taking on the World renowned Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge: The World’s Toughest Row, in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. Rowing 3,000 miles unaided across the Atlantic Ocean, the experience promises to be the challenge of a lifetime, testing them physically, mentally and emotionally. The Buoys are determined to succeed through extreme weather and punishing conditions. Setting off from San Sebastian in La Gomera, Canary Islands, the Buoys will have to navigate the vast and wild Atlantic Ocean to the finish line in Nelson’s Dockyard, English Harbour, Antigua & Barbuda.[/p][p]With no previous 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.[/p][p]Finally and crucially, the Buoys hope to raise as much as possible for their chosen charity Macmillan. The Team have all been affected by cancer, so it is a cause close to their hearts.
