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.

 

For more information about Row the Atlantic Ocean and how to get involved please visit:-

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.
