TEAM TRITON'S WORLD RECORD ATLANTIC ROW ATTEMPT PDF Print E-mail

Dear friend,

Next month I am hoping to lead a team of six in an attempt to break the World Record for the fastest ever recorded row across the Atlantic Ocean: the current record stands at 33 days 7hours and we are hoping to make the 5,200km crossing from the Canaries to Barbados in under a month. Our boat is called 'Triton' and she is a lightweight purpose-built fast ocean racing machine. We have three sculling positions and our sculls/oars will never stop moving for the entire month - each crew member will scull for 2 hours on followed by two hours off for the whole voyage. You will be able to monitor our progress by following the regular update of the satellite tracker on our website.

We are hoping to raise a significant amount of money for our charity 'Combat Stress' - please consider whether you can afford to donate a few pounds to this very worthy cause. You can donate via our team website or via our justgiving webpage or you can send me a cheque [made out to 'Combat Stress' and sent to: 15 Wilton Crescent, London, SW19 3QY].

Many thanks in anticipation,

David Hosking
