Row the Atlantic Ocean 2020

Row the Atlantic Ocean 2020

The Monkey Fist Adventures “Brain Waves” challenge will see a mixed crew of 4 attempt to row two oceans in 2020. The Atlantic, leaving in January from Lanzarote to Antigua covering approximately 3,500 miles and then the Indian Ocean, leaving mid to late April from Geraldton in Western Australia and ending in Mombasa, Kenya covering approximately 5,500 miles.

 

While they are out on the water they will be able to hold real time live video sessions and are keen to try and engage with children of all ages, inspiring them to challenge themselves by trying scenarios out of their comfort zones, to think about how to lead a healthy lifestyle and how they can help others.

 

Teachers can use the sessions as hooks into topics such as geography, meteorology, marine conservation, plastics in the oceans, doing something to help others and how to work together as a team.

 

This type of technology has never been available on an Ocean Rowing boat before and will give a direct insight into what it is like to live life away from land for months at a time

 

While they are at sea they will be completely unsupported and for most of the time the closest human beings to them will be the astronauts living on the International Space Station. This means that they will have to deal with any problems that they face by themselves, relying on the equipment that they take with them when they leave and each other.

 

During their time on the water the crew will have to overcome many obstacles. Sea sickness, exhaustion, weight loss, big weather and towering seas but on the flip side they will see the most amazing beauty through sunsets and sunrises, the night sky and marine life. Nature at it’s best and worst.

The live chat is always open next to the video player so feel free to leave us a question or comment and we’ll get it forwarded to the panel of experts in construction.

  • Billy Taylor

    The Skipper

    Billy started ocean rowing challenges in 2014 after finding out his childhood friend had been diagnosed with Young Onset Parkinson’s Disease. He has rowed across the Pacific and Indian Oceans, the Mediterranean and the English Channel, all of which have been to raise awareness of YOPD.

  • Alex Mason

    The Novice

    Alex is a multi-discipline adventurer, she has walked over 9,400 miles around the world, spent 6 months in the saddle cycle touring through Australia and Indonesia, and she has summited a few mountains. Alex has limited experience on the water but is keen to see if her arms work as well as her legs.

  • Scott Butler

    The Able Seaman

    Self professed adventurer, aspiring author and actual firefighter… Scott is on a mission to complete a massive bucket list! With a string of fundraising adventures under his belt including a solo row across the Black Sea, he brings experience and enthusiasm to the crew!

  • Liz Dennett

    The Scouser

    Liz was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease in 2014, 5 weeks before her 44th birthday. Since then Liz has been raising awareness to try and show people that a diagnosis doesn’t mean the end of your life. Liz has always been a keen runner and has completed many marathons in her time. She has also taken up paddle boarding and competes in Canicross, Bikejor and dog triathlon events.

  • John Haskell

    The Entertainer

    After acquiring an old wooden boat that was an exhibit in Swansea maritime museum and totally rebuilding it, John successfully rowed across the Atlantic Ocean as one of a pair. He has two teenage children and believes the most important role in life is being the best dad that he can be and hopefully inspiring them and others.
