My story

[p][b][i][u]The World’s Toughest Row. A 3,000-nautical mile race across the Atlantic Ocean [/u][/i][/b] [/p][p]Thank you for taking the time to visit our page.[/p][p]Dan and Tony (Team Second Chance) will set off in December 2020 and row for more than 40 days to raise money for charity in the most gruelling endurance challenge they’ve ever attempted. They’ll face 30-40ft waves, suffer exhaustion and sleep deprivation rowing a 7.5metre boat for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in a bid to win first place, in a race dubbed the World’s Toughest Row. [/p][p]The Atlantic Challenge is a global race where teams row under their own power for 3,000 nautical miles West across the Atlantic Ocean. The race begins at San Sebastian, La Gomera in the Canary Islands (280N 180W) and finishes at Nelson’s Dockyard English Harbour, Antigua (170N 610W).[/p][p]Each year, in early December, up to 30 teams from across the globe prepare their boat for an epic journey across the ferocious Atlantic Ocean. Dan and Tony will join the 2018 race crews on this unique voyage, testing their mental strength and physical endurance to the extreme. [/p][p]Team Second chance consists of two ordinary guys, Dan and Tony, with a vision. They believe everybody is entitled to a ‘second chance’. Their chosen charities help give people second chances. [/p][p][b]Ickle Pickles [/b]is a charity that supports small and sick babies. [/p][p][b]Care After Combat[/b] is a charity that supports veterans who have fought to protect the world in which we live.[/p][p][b]Dan and Tony (Team Second Chance); four oars, three legs, two men, one boat[/b][/p][p]Dan Angell is the Managing Director of a Public Affairs company founded by his father. As well as rowing, Dan also has a passion for martial arts, fighting on the mats and in the ring in Kung Fu, Kickboxing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Thai boxing. Dan is a father to two children.[/p][p]Tony Wyles served 23 years in the Territorial Army. Whilst conducting commercial operations in Lebanon in 2006, a command-detonated booby trap functioned causing Tony life-threatening injuries, including the loss of his right leg below the knee. Tony was determined to recover and within six months had returned to work. Tony continues to work in mine clearance, most recently in Iraq. Tony is a father to three children.[/p][p]Together, Dan and Tony are Team Second Chance and they are no strangers to extreme challenges or raising significant funds for charity. [/p][p]Individually, they have competitive natures with a drive to push boundaries. Together, their combined skills and unyielding determination are an effective force, not only for charitable fundraising, but to win the challenge. [/p][p][b]What Lies ahead?[/b][/p][p][b]3,000 Miles - 2 Guys - 1 Boat[/b][/p][p][i]“More people have climbed Everest than have rowed the Atlantic.”[/i][/p][p][b]Sleep Derivation and Exhaustion:[/b][/p][p][i]Rowing 24 hours, 7 days a week, in a 2 hour on/off shift pattern for 3,000 miles.[/i][/p][p][b]Isolation:[/b][/p][p]We will receive no outside help. In an emergency situation a rescue can be days away.[/p][p][b]Extreme Weather Conditions:[/b][/p][p][i]30-40 ft. waves, storms, extreme range of temperatures [/i][/p][p][b]Vulnerability:[/b][/p][p][i]Whales and Sharks, shipping lanes, collision course for vessels 30x the size of our rowing boat.[/i][/p][p][b]Health Issues:[/b][/p][p][i]Salt sores, blisters/infections, muscle damage and depletion.[/i][/p][p][b]Nutrition:[/b][/p][p][i]All food will be on the boat and water pumped from the sea. Keeping nutrition levels high and fully hydrated is vital.[/i][/p][p]Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.[/p]
