Our Challenge

Known as one of the toughest challenges on earth, there is little wonder that a mere 500 people have completed, whilst almost ten times that number have been to the summit of Mount Everest and nearly twice the number have been into space. Team TOMM will be rowing more than 3,000 nautical miles across the world’s second largest ocean as part of the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge. Once TOMM leave the shores of La Gomera the elements, blisters, salt rashes, sunstroke, sleep depervation and stormy seas will slowly break them down both physically and mentally. Relying solely on their own manpower, navigation and interpretation of the weather conditions they will not be allowed any outside assistance until they get a helping hand off the boat on arrival at English Harbour, Antigua.
