All female crew Hannah Walton, Flo Ward and Georgie Leech, also known as Atlantic Antics, are taking part in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge - with a passionate cause in mind and want to raise awareness to support “Women in Sport” and “Rowing Together for Healthy Minds".
As the girls take on this magnanimous challenge, we can't help but shout about how proud we are to be one of their sponsors.
Why Are We Sponsoring Them?
This challenge is especially close to the heart of Jo Bonser (MD of Hcsuk) who knows Hannah, and is in awe of her and her team as they attempt what is regarded as ‘The World's Toughest Row’ over 3000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean. This is such a huge challenge and raising awareness for such a great cause resonates our passion for making a difference to the lives of those that we touch throughout our journey.
What Are We Sponsoring?
Safety harnesses - as safety is one of our core values, and at the heart of our business – we wanted to make sure that the girls are kept safe during this gruelling and arduous challenge. The crew will be wearing our harnesses at all times during every rowing stint
Crew oars – it is essential for the girls to have the right tools to propel them in the right direction and we also hope to provide all of our customers with guidance and assistance through all of their challenges.
Flushable wipes – we understand how important cleanliness is and these will help to keep the girls feeling clean and fresh throughout their journey
Sterile hand sanitiser - so the girls can stay well and protected from germs all the way
Atlantic Antics are aiming to be the youngest all female crew to complete this awesome challenge. Girl power!
