Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge

- "The World's Toughest Row"

 

On 12th December, Florence Ward, Georgie Leech, and Hannah Walton will be setting off from La Gomera in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge. Rowing 3,000 miles to Antigua they will face the trip of a lifetime as they set out to break two world records: the fastest and youngest female trio to have rowed across the Atlantic.

 

However, the challenge these three women face is much greater than just an ocean. They want to prove what women can achieve together, the strength of their friendship, and show that women's teams can be just as competitive.
