AACE are proud to announce their sponsorship of Row4Victory, four fearless friends from Yorkshire who will be putting their physical and mental strength to the test when they row 3,000 nautical miles across the ocean in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge 2018 to honour the work of the Royal British Legion over the 100 years since the end of World War One.
The team unites a serving Royal Engineer, an ex-Royal Marine, a civilian and a serving Chief Technician in the Royal Air Force. They will attempt to cross the unrelenting seas and win the 4 man pure class race, smashing the current record. Raising money to commemorate the work of the Royal British Legion in the last 100 years, the race could take between 35 and 70 days with the team rowing 2 hour shifts in pairs. Described at the ‘World’s toughest endurance race’, team Row4Victory will start the challenge in December 2018 in La Gomera, Canary Islands and finish in Antigua. Currently fewer people have rowed the Atlantic than have travelled into space or climbed Mount Everest. With storms, adverse weather conditions, hunger and sleep deprivation, the team will face the challenge of their lives.
