Talisker Atlantic Challenge boat

Today I visited the rowing boat that a 4 man team from Portrush Northern Ireland spent over 31 days in while rowing 3000 miles for The Talisker Atlantic Challenge.   The quarters are incredibly cramped and designed around the idea of shifts. Still the phrase Tough motherfuckers comes to mind. I can only imagine the physical and mental hardships the team endured. I'm sure there were many times that individuals wanted to quit but the team held strong and this amazing feat was accomplished in a time equal to the world record.

Makes you proud to be from this small country.

Well done lads.
