Talisker Whisky Atlantic Rowing  Challenge 2022

We are thrilled to be one of the three charities supported by Euan, Jack, Arthur and Hamish Friend as they take part in this amazing challenge. 

The two sets of twins took delivery of their boat in May 2021 and have since been training from their base in Exmouth. 

They will be setting off on this incredible adventure in 2022 and will be setting a world record for being the first four brothers to achieve this feat of endurance.

After the initial shock, the boys’ parents Simon and Judy are so proud of what their sons are attempting and are hoping that everyone will give them a huge amount of support and encouragement.

We will keep you all updated on their progress in training – Well done lads!!
