Team story

[p]Three soldiers and a civvy, rowing for heroes in the Talisker Whiskey Atlantic Challenge 2019. Rowing 5,000 kilometres, unassisted across the Atlantic Ocean in December 2019.[/p][p][url=http://rowforheroes.co.uk]rowforheroes.co.uk[/url][/p][p]Derek Spence, John Ford, John Adams and Colin Corfield and their boat - The Atlantic Guardsman - are going to be rowing the Atlantic in December 2019 in support of The Scots Guards Charity. The charity supports serving and retired soldiers and their families. Providing assistance through many means, providing support in their times of most CRITICAL need. The Scots Guards are supporting us as we set out on our Atlantic conquest. We are very grateful for their support.[/p][p]The idea we could conquer the Atlantic germinated in the Sahara, when two of us were running the MdS – the World’s Toughest Footrace. The next challenge had to be the World’s Toughest Row. We recruited two other like minds and here we are.[/p][p]The Atlantic Row will involve some 1.5 million oar strokes, something like 40 days at sea, six metre waves, rowing shifts of two hours on; two hours off, 24/7. More people have climbed Everest than rowed an ocean. [/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
