Boats and Classes

Our philosophy

  • Each and every rower and team to be celebrated as the winners they are, for taking on the challenge it is rowing to row across an ocean
  • Each rower, team and boat design to be celebrated and treated equally before, during and after the race.
  • Each record within the race to be acknowledged and respected. Atlantic Campaigns will focus on overall records such as the fastest crossing but will ensure design records are given proper attention and coverage
