3'000 miles / 4'800 km
~ 45 days
2 on / 2 off
6'000 - 10'000
The starting point of the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge is in La Gomera on the Canary Islands. The race finishes 3'000 miles / 4'800 km west in English Harbour, Antigua.
The Challenge is set to start on the 12th of December 2019. We expect to reach Antigua in the second half of January 2020. The world record for pairs stands at 37 days.
Most teams employ a "2 hours on, 2 hours off" rhythm. By alternating, they ensure that the boat is in motion at all times. Consequently, each team member is rowing for 12 hours per day.
We will load all our food onto the boat before the start of the race. We expect to use anywhere from 6'000 to 10'000 calories per day. Nonetheless, most rowers loose 8-12 kgs.
