Old Blundellian's set to break new world record

Published by Blundell's School on Wednesday 14th of December 2022

Old Blundellians Jack, Hamish, Arthur & Euan are two sets of twin Brothers who are now attempting to break two world records, the first 4 brothers to row an ocean and the first 2 sets of twins to row an ocean.

The Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge will take them more than 3,000 miles west from San Sebastian in La Gomera, Canary Islands, Spain to Nelson's Dockyard, English Harbour, Antigua & Barbuda. The race commenced on 12 December with up to 30 teams participating from around the world.

Over the 3,000 mile journey, they will be battling sleep deprivation, salt sores, and physical extremes inflicted by the race. They will be left to their own thoughts, the vast expanse of the ocean, and the job of getting the boat safely across the pond.

Growing up together in the green hills of Devon, adventure has come naturally, as has the competitive need to push each other further, faster and higher. Now older and following different career and personal paths, this challenge is our opportunity to re-strengthen the bonds of brotherhood and raise money and awareness for causes close to their hearts.

To succeed, Jack, Hamish, Arthur and Euan will need to come together as a team to conquer the Atlantic Ocean and overcome the immense mental, physical and logistical challenge it will take to do so.

They are raising money for three fantastic charities, Drive Forward Foundation, Friends of Kiwoko Hospital and CHAT Mid Devon. If you would like to donate and to follow their progress, please click here: www.thefriendshipatlantic.com

We wish them the best of luck and look forward to seeing their progress.
