The transatlantic row has started!
Right now four men are rowing across an ocean for urology
Four men from Cornwall are currently taking on the Talisker Whiskey Atlantic Challenge to raise donations for The Urology Foundation and you can help.
Jon, Bez, Andy, and Alex are the Atlantic Seamen. They are four average men from Cornwall who are taking on a serious challenge. More people have attempted to climb Mount Everest than row the Atlantic Ocean, yet these four men are currently out there, in the middle of the Ocean, rowing to raise money for urology patients through The Urology Foundation.
Help them, and be in with a chance to win
To support the Atlantic Seamen, The Urology Foundation have set up The 100 Club. When you join The 100 Club you can purchase a £100 square (or squares) on a grid of 100 squares. On 31 January one square will be pulled out of a hat and the winner will receive 10% of the profits (up to £1000) and the rest will be donated to The Urology Foundation so that it can be invested into preventing, treating, and curing, urology diseases.
For your £100 donation, you are in with a chance to win £1000 and are guaranteed to support the Atlantic Seamen as they take on their epic challenge.
Following their journey online
The Atlantic Seamen are set to row for around six weeks. They will each have to alternate between sleeping for two hours and rowing for two hours for the entirety of their journey. As a result, they are expected to face problems with sleep deprivation and hallucinations. They will also be covered in salt sores and will have to row naked in order to avoid problems with chaffing. While their families are celebrating Christmas, they will be negotiating waves the size of two double decker buses.
