This is the fundraising page of the 'Shaw and Partners Atlantic Crew' of Sam Horsley, Rob Wells, James Samuels and Louis Hugh-Jones.
The Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge is the premier event in ocean rowing racing - spanning more than 5000 kilometres across the rough Atlantic ocean from La Gomera, Canary Islands to English Harbour, Antigua. Our campaign will support and raise awareness for a mental health charity in Australia.
Setting off in December of 2021, the crew will row into the new year against 30 or more fiercely competitive crews, braving rough waves, dehydration and exhaustion. For the race’s entirety, the boys will row shifts day and night in tandem - 2 hours on, 2 hours off, 24 hours a day.
Historically, crews of 4 take between 30 and 50 days to complete this immense challenge, pushing the boundaries of physical and mental endurance. The annual race unites a diverse range of competitors from around the globe, all sharing the same unique objective: to cross an ocean unsupported in a rowing boat.
Your donation will go towards allowing us to cover the costs of necessary equipment and entry fees to compete in the challenge, all of which amounts to $250,000.
Put simply, without your support we cannot make this dream a reality. Please show your support by making a tax deductible donation today!
