Last night, under cover of darkness, the four ladies of TEAM ATLANTIC ENDEAVOUR rowed into English Harbour. Sarah Hornby, Kate Hallam, Becky Charlton and Charlie Best crossed the finish line after 55 days, 13 hours and 29 minutes at sea and got a fantastic welcome from friends and family.For Atlantic Endeavour, this was a dream adventure years in the making. The team originally entered the race in 2015, but were forced to make the difficult decision to defer due to funding challenges. The resilient attitude of the girls to keep going and return a year later helped carry them across the Atlantic to the finish line. 

Skipper, Sarah, comments: “This was our toughest challenge to date, and we couldn’t have done it without the support of our friends and families back home. We all experienced hallucinations during the race and there were some difficult days, but we just got back up every day and kept rowing. It’s been a long journey to reach the finish line and the feeling of elation arriving in Antigua tonight was unlike anything we could have imagined.”

 As three boats still make their way towards Antigua, Atlantic Campaigns’ Duty Officer Ian Couch gave this update on the 8th of February.

“ELAINE HOPLEY should be the next finisher arriving late on 11 Feb at her current speed. The winds have died and things have slowed slightly but with less than 300 miles to go the feeling of anticipation will be building and that brings new strength. Early conditions caused Elaine a lot of problems but she battled through and has been doing well, not just rowing and maintaining but demonstrating the vital components – a sense of humour and an appreciation of the challenge.

The Schwartz brothers of 32° NORTH are due in next. Current estimates are for around 01 March. The brothers have over 750 miles to go but when you see that as entering the ‘home straight’ you can see just how big the challenge is! Always calm and relaxed they have never seemed flustered or bothered by conditions or mechanical/power problems and always ask after the rest of the fleet.

Daryl Farmer in ROWERS ARK still has furthest to go at around 1120 miles. Rudder problems, a broken foot plate and rowing gate have heaped adversity on Daryl but after a tough struggle he has adapted well and continues to make the miles steadily towards the finish”.
