2ND February 2016, English Harbour, Antigua

Oarsome Buoys, Shaun Pedley (22) and Ryan Barter (30), have finished the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, rowing into Antigua for a nighttime welcome that lit up the sky and a deafening celebration from the horns of the yachts in the marina.  This has to be the loudest entrance yet!

The two-man team from Devon in the UK came fifth in the overall race and third of all the pairs, beating 21 other teams to the finish line in Antigua.   Shaun and Ryan took on the arduous challenge to raise money for the Rowcroft Hospice.  It took this determined team only 44 days, 14 hours, 43 minutes to make the crossing.

Skipper Shaun comments on the race: “Coming into Antigua to the reception from our family and friends was better than we could have imagined, it was a definite high of the trip. Even better than this achievement is that we’re still great friends at the end of it all and had an unforgettable experience.”

Shaun and Ryan met skippering Crew Transfer Vessels and having both grown up by the sea, bonded over their ambition to complete a nautical challenge. Shaun and Ryan have both had their families affected by cancer and with this inspiration at the heart of their challenge, decided to sign-up for the race. This row marks Shaun’s second Atlantic crossing and his ocean rowing experience combined with Ryan’s thirst for adventure made for a perfect pairing for the race.
