We are excited to announce our sponsorship of ‘Hell Oar High Water’ an incredible adventure and challenge.

HOHW (Hell Oar High Water) is made up of James and Chris,  two young, brave men from Bradford embarking on a journey to row across the Atlantic Ocean, The Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge.

The Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge is, without a doubt, the worlds toughest rowing race. The idea came to Sir Chay Blyth whilst he was rowing the Atlantic Ocean in 1966 with John Ridgeway. It was a 92 day battle against hurricanes, 50 foot waves and near starvation. It’s no surprise that more people have been into space, or climbed Everest than have rowed the Atlantic.

Chris and James will travel west from La Gomera, Canary Islands 3000+ nautical miles to the English Harbour, Antigua in 90 days in just a single rowing boat.

We wish the very best of luck to these incredibly brave individuals and are proud to be sponsoring such an amazing challenge.

We are one of their prominent sponsors and are proud to have our branding on their boat. They will embark on the 12th of December.
