HI, WE'RE THE SEABLINGS

We are a brother and sister rowing more than 3,000 nautical miles across the Atlantic Ocean in December 2019 as part of the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge to demonstrate the importance of Gender Equality in building a sustainable, prosperous and empowering society for men and women globally. Our aim is to break any gender stereotypes by putting to the test what it truly means to be in the ​#​sameboat

Known as “The World’s Toughest Row” , we will be competing in the Talisker Whiskey Atlantic Challenge as the first-ever brother and sister. Leaving on December 12th, 2019 from La Gomera, The Canary Islands we will row 3000 nautical miles across the Atlantic Ocean to Antigua.

A true test of endurance, we will have to take shifts, 2 hours on, 2 hours off, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to keep the boat moving. This means a maximum of 2 hours sleep at one time for the duration of the row!

Unsupported in the middle of the ocean along with 40+ foot waves, freezing conditions, equipment failures and cramped sleeping quarters this challenge is as technical and mentally tough as it is physical.

Why are we are doing this ?

UN Women is the UN organization dedicated to gender equality and the empowerment of women. A global champion for women and girls, UN Women was established in 2010 to accelerate progress on meeting their needs worldwide.

“Gender equality is a shared vision of social justice and human rights”
