The perfect training boat for an ocean crossing

Not content with spending months at the bottom of the ocean, four saturation divers (aka The Bubbleheads) with zero rowing experience thought it was time for a new challenge – to row the Atlantic in the 2020 Talisker Whiskey Atlantic Challenge.

Bernie, James, Andy & Chris first met with Angus in February and we are delighted that they have chosen to buy their ocean rowing boat from Rannoch Adventure – the R45.  

After talking to them about training, they are keen to get their hands on a Rannoch Explorer. This would enable them to build up hours on the water as a team whilst their new build R45 ocean rowing boat is in production. So a Try Before You Buy Session was booked in with Charlie this week.

The boys said:

An exciting day for two of the Bubbleheads as they headed down to Rannoch Adventure to test out the new Rannoch Explorer. Safe to say the lads loved it and we all agree it will make a great addition to the Bubblehead’s fleet. Big thanks once again to Rannoch for letting us try it out today.

Our pleasure! We look forward to hearing more about your training over the coming months.
