The Challenge

Often regarded as ‘the world’s toughest row’, The Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge is a gruelling race, with up to 30 teams participating to make it from the Canary Islands, all the way to Antigua & Babuda.
The 3000-mile-long journey takes approximately 50 days to complete. During that time, the crew take turns to row for two hours, then sleep for two hours – on repeat, for the entire challenge. It’s gruelling, back-breaking work. But it’s worth every stroke of the oar to make such a huge difference to the lives of those who need it.

Did you know:

  • More people have climbed Mount Everest than rowed across an entire ocean.
  • Sometimes, the Atlantic waves can reach over 20ft high.
  • In the past four Talisker races, over EUR 6 million has been raised for charities.
  • Rowers usually burn around 5,000 calories a day.
