A 5000km trip across the big pond
Known as one of the toughest challenges on earth, made more difficult by raging seas, howling winds, sharks, blisters and salt rashes, sunstroke and sleep deprivation, 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.
This December, the Relentless crew will race across the Atlantic Ocean competing in the Talisker Whiskey Atlantic Challenge. The race starts in La Gomera, a Canary Island steeped in Maritime History. It was from this very island that Christopher Columbus set sail in search of the “New World” some 500 years ago. From here they shall race across 5000km of open ocean towards the Carribean island of Antigua.
The current record stands at 35 days. We can beat this with a little trust in the weather and some help from you along the way!
