CoGen gets behind the Astro to Atlantic rowing team!
15th Nov 2018
The Astro to Atlantic all-women rowing crew has taken on the formidable challenge of rowing 3,000 miles from the Canary Islands to Antigua. The women have their hearts, minds and bodies set on becoming fastest all women crew to cross the Atlantic – and with the current record stands at 34 days, it’s a tough feat!
The challenge is relentless, rowing 2 hours on, 2 hours off, 24 hours a day, non-stop until you reach Antigua. As a team of four this could take between 40 and 60 days. During the trip rowers face a constant battle of sleep deprivation, blisters, salt sores and physical exhaustion; it is the ultimate challenge of endurance, testing rowers to their limits, both physically and mentally.
