Everyone at Beers send huge congratulations to the girls on completing a tremendous feat well done to you all.
At 2:09am UK time (10:09pm in Antigua) this Sunday morning 27th January and after 45d 15h 14m 0s at sea, Chloe, Helen, Lou and Emily cross the finishing line in English Harbour Antigua to complete the race in 10th place in the ‘Fours’ group and 12th overall out of 27 teams completing.
Beers LLP are proud sponsors of the Astro to Atlantic team as
they undertake the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge
The Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge is a race like no other. It is an endurance race across one of the world’s most dangerous oceans; The Atlantic.
We will row unaided and unsupported through rough seas and storms onboard our 23 foot rowing boat for up to 90 days at sea.
Enduring sleep deprivation, dehydration, huge calorie deficits, hallucinations, salt sores, 60ft waves and physical and mental exhaustion as we navigate our way across one of the busiest shipping zones in the world.
This challenge will not only be a massive test for us, but will also push our ability to work as a team to its limits!
No wonder more people have been in to space than rowed the Atlantic Ocean.
