Dicky Taylor, George Biggar, Peter Robinson and Stuart Watts will put their bodies, minds and souls to the ultimate test later this year by taking on one of the world's greatest physical challenges, rowing unaided for 3,000 miles across the unforgiving Atlantic Ocean.
Setting off from La Gomera on the 12th of December 2017, The Four Oarsmen will be rowing across the world’s second largest ocean as part of the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge. Relying solely on their own manpower and resolve, they will not be allowed any outside assistance until they arrive on Antigua.
Team member Peter, was inspired by friend Ben Kende, a rising rugby star, who sustained a spinal cord injury while playing, he now uses a wheelchair and has limited use of his arms and no use of his legs.
The four great friends with an insatiable thirst for a challenge are hoping to raise £50,000 for Spinal Research. They have already organised a 24 hour row in central London with their boat and are also planning a fundraising evening and auction.
