About the Race

On the 2nd of December 2013 Mike Burton and Tom Salt will be taking part in the toughest rowing race on earth by rowing ‘Locura’, a 7 meter ocean rowing boat across the Atlantic Ocean. More people have been to space or climbed mount Everest than have rowed the Atlantic. This is a unique test of physical and mental endurance. They have to work through tropical storms, psychological stresses and living for between 40-90 days in nothing more than a rowing boat.

Whilst we train and then embark on the journey of a lifetime across over 3000 miles of tropical storms, sweltering heat and strenuous physical and mental exercise, we will be blogging and updating on our progress; please follow our blog. You will also be able to follow our progress as we cross the Atlantic by visiting the official Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge site
