Skipper; Will and I attended the Talisker Race Brief in Harrogate on the 22nd April. Ian Couch , Lee Fudge and Nikky Halter from the TWAC team gave us a brilliant overview of the race, its history, long list of rules, perils, organisational challenges, lows and highs. They regaled us with anecdotes from their own crossings with stories of wildlife, wild weather, sores on their bottoms and nakedness (this is becoming a recurring theme it seems). We also had to opportunity to meet some other hopefuls looking to compete in the upcoming years races, we would love to wish Kelda Wood (www.rowtoraise.com) who is going it alone (the lunatic), Robin Drysdale from Atlantic Fortitude 18 and all the others the best of luck with their campaigns. See you at the start line guys!!
Here we will be keeping you up to date with all our musings pre, during and post competing in the Atlantic Challenge race that started 12th December 2018.
