TEAM ANTIGUA COMPLETE 200-MILE TRAINING ROWMonday 21st August 2017
Training for the 2017 Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge continues for Team Antigua with their recently completed 200-mile row from Antigua to the BVI. Starting on 12th August, the team averaged 100 miles per day to arrive roughly 48 hours later.
From Team Antigua on arrival:
“A wonderful welcome from the HIHO and the Nanny Cay guys after rowing for two days from Antigua to the BVI. We are pretty stoked with the 100 mile per day average and with the trip in general. Those Go Hiho Suntech shirts kept us cool and protected from the sun.”
