Racing 3000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean
Pushing our physical and mental boundaries
In December 2020, the One Ocean Crew will race across the Atlantic Ocean. Covering more than 3000 miles from La Gomera, Canary Islands to Antigua they will be completely self sufficient, powered only by strength, grit and determination.
The race will be relentless; rowing 2 hours on, 2 hours off 24 hours a day and facing salt sores, sleep deprivation and the elements - it is no surprise that more people have been into space than successfully rowed the Atlantic.

The Boat - "Doris"
28ft long, with small sleeping cabins at each end for shelter, this will be our home for the entire race.
The cabins contain all of our navigation and communications equipment along with a lot of other kit. We need to learn how to maintain and repair the boat for a successful crossing, being completely self sufficient. There is no shower and our toilet is just a bucket tied on board! We have a water maker which will produce our drinking water and relies on solar energy.
It will be a tight squeeze to row and live on the boat for more than a month and we are so excited to experience it!
