The world’s toughest row

An extreme series of endurance races where individuals from across the globe gather annually to test themselves against Mother Nature and compete to row thousands of kilometres across the Atlantic or the Pacific Ocean. Each ocean offers a unique atmosphere allowing between 20-40 teams every year to gather together and absorb what will be a once in a lifetime adventure and experience.

Sleep deprivation, hallucinations, hunger and the ultimate test of body and mind will be balanced by sighting incredible marine life, witnessing the breaking of a new day and sun sets that cannot be viewed from land. Camaraderie, achievement, self-discovery and pride will be among the many experiences delivered by rowing across an ocean.
