After over 80 days at sea and at the mercy of the elements, all 26 teams in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge have crossed the finished line in Antigua, completing what has been deemed the World’s Toughest Race.

And what a year it has been. Among the courageous fleet are some world record-breakers: Ocean Reunion (UK) have written their names in ocean rowing history by completing the fastest crossing in the history of the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, rowing the Atlantic in 37 days and 9 hours. This year’s challenge also saw the youngest (Callum Gathercole) and oldest (Peter Smith) people to ever row any ocean.

The fleet of solo rowers, pairs and fours set out from the La Gomera, Canary Islands on the 20th of December 2015 and crossed 3,000 nautical miles across the Atlantic Ocean to arrive safely in Antigua, in the Caribbean from January to March 2016. Pitting the teams against hurricanes, 40-foot waves, sharks, sleep deprivation and solitude, the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge is considered to be one of the toughest voyages on the planet.

While new crews, boats and charities get ready for another highly exciting year, below are the 2015/2016 race result:
