Congratulations to Team Hesco (Theo Jones (27) and Shane Chadwick (34)), who have completed the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, the world’s toughest row, in 46 days 9 hours and 32 minutes. Welcomed on a sunny afternoon in Antigua, after a downpour in the final hours of their row, Team Hesco has finished ninth overall beating 17 other teams to the finish line. Shane is the only Australian competitor in this year’s race.

Team Hesco took on the arduous challenge to raise money for the Think Fragile X Association and the Not Forgotten Association.

Skipper Theo comments on the race: “We had such an incredible experience and the reception when we came into Antigua was unlike anything we could have ever imagined. It was brilliant and we’re so happy that we’ve completed such an exceptional adventure.”

Theo and Shane both had their sea legs firmly established before setting off on this transatlantic adventure, having worked on super yachts for the past few years together. A determined and athletic pair prior to the challenge, their shared motivation, positive attitude and existing working relationship under pressure on the sea has seen them pass the test of both physical and mental stamina in this epic challenge.
