English Harbour, Antigua

Apache helicopter pilots, David Lambert and Tom Brunwin (Atlantic Drifters) have crossed the finish line in Antigua to finish in fourth place of the world’s toughest rowing race, the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge. They are winners of the Pure Pairs Class, and the first Pure boat home. The friends finished the 3,000 mile slog in 43 days 16 hours and 18 minutes.

Dave and Tom crossed the finish line in fourth place, beating 22 teams to the island of Antigua in the Caribbean. They decided to take on the challenge whilst both serving in Afghanistan in 2012. They’re raising money for two charities, Overseas Aid for the Kids of Sierra Leone and for the Lt Dougie Dalzell MC Memorial Trust, in memory of their friend.

Skipper David Lambert comments on their crossing: “The highs of this crossing far outweigh the lows, it was incredibly tough, especially the last two weeks when we suffered a complete black out on all communications, but we had a fantastic time.”

Army Air Corps officers Brunwin and Lambert met in 2011 whilst serving in Wattisham, Suffolk, and both have completed tours of Afghanistan. Both Brunwin and Lambert are no strangers to extreme challenges. 33 year old Lambert is a keen marathon runner who completed the Atacama Crossing (250km in seven days) in 2010 and the Swiss Mountainman in 2013. Brunwin, 32, is an accomplished sportsman and rower.
