They say Burnham on Crouch is the Home of Ocean Rowing and this week has proven the point! Burnham and the waters of the Thames Estuary have played host to an ocean rowing extravaganza - a training week like no other.
A number of teams from the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge joined forces with Rannoch Adventure's Roxy Atlantic 2021-22 crew to gain time on the water, learn and hone boat and rowing skills and team bonding ready for their ultimate adventure.
"Outsiders would think there was a rowing regatta going on! However, it was a training week for future Atlantic Ocean rowers. Rannoch Adventure, in conjunction with Atlantic Campaigns and Talisker Whisky, have masterminded five days of full on preparation for their ocean crossings. It's been a pleasure to host all of the teams." Charlie Pitcher
"Atlantic Flyers had the pleasure of a week’s intensive ocean rowing training under the exceptional supervision of the Rannoch and Atlantic Campaigns teams. From having never rowed a stroke in an ocean rowing boat, the team now feel ready to conquer the Atlantic. Huge thanks to everyone for their energy, dedication and vast experience.” Team Atlantic Flyers
