And they’re off!

After months of intensive preparation, the 12 crews taking part in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge have finally started their 3,000-mile journey from the Canary Islands to the Caribbean.

With crowds gathered in the harbour of San Sebastián de La Gomera, the rowers made their way to the pontoons promptly at 9:30am. With a mix of nervous anticipation and emotion from friends, family and fans, rowers hugged their loved ones before crossing the start line one at a time, in what was a light-hearted kickoff to an epic journey.

Watch the action from the race start below:

Over the next few weeks, we will closely record the stories of these courageous adventurers.
