Training on the race boat has begun! The boys have based their sea training out of Burnham-on-Crouch, Essex and have spent a lot of weekends fighting the currents, winds and changing tides to get used to life at sea, and they have learnt a LOT!
Running aground, steering into the wind, chart plotting, using the SIMRAD electronics, the necessity of sun cream (even this Summer), getting used to the “bathroom facilities” and near collisions to name but a few of the many aspects of their training and the challenge itself that they are acclimatising to.
We are very proud to be one of Dan and Will’s sponsors and will be following their progress keenly. You can find out more about the Atlantic Row Challenge by clicking here: https://www.taliskerwhiskyatlanticchallenge.com/the-teams/atlantic-row-2013/
