Grandads of the Atlantic

In just over a week, on 12 December, the Grandads of the Atlantic will set off on their World Record Attempt to cross the Atlantic as part of The Talisker Atlantic Challenge.

Peter and Neil, former Officers in The Parachute Regiment, will be setting off on 12 December from La Gomera in a race that will see them cross the Atlantic ocean before finally arriving in Antigua to cross the finish line.

They are hoping to set a new World Record as the oldest pair to row across the Atlantic with a combined age of 123!

Our Grandads have taken on this epic challenge to raise money for three charities; Royal British Legion Industries, Dreams Come True and Support Our Paras. We are honoured to have been chosen and have enjoyed supporting them through their training journey towards the start line for the past year.

They have set themselves an ambitious fundraising target and have done incredibly well so far, but could still use your help. Please visit https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/Team/GrandadsoftheAtlantic to wish them luck and support them on this amazing challenge.

For updates on their journey and to find out how they are getting on, as well as information about how to track them during the race, please follow them on:
