After delays from extreme winds in La Gomera, the 2017 Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge started this morning and Team Antigua has begun their row home to Antigua as part of the 25 strong fleet. Watch the live coverage of the start from Atlantic Campaigns here.
Track the fleet here, or on the YB Races App. If you download the app once its installed select the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge from the event list and you will be able to tune in throughout the day to see how the teams are faring. You can also visit the Team Antigua - Atlantic Rowers Facebook page for updates and of course we will keep the updates coming at Antiguanice.com.
Team Antigua is raising funds through this row to create properly managed marine protected area in English Harbour, and also to help where they can in Barbuda following Hurricane Irma. Donate to their charity here.
Wishing Team Antigua all the best! Get your flags ready to welcome them home!
Come Back Darling - UB40
In a wonderful coincidence, UB40 have released a new music video today staring UB40. Teaming up with Virgin Atlantic they are inviting British tourists to 'Come Back Darling' for their 2018 holiday. Shot only two weeks ago its a great showcase of our island. And just think if you head here from the end of January through to early March not only will you get to experience all that is on offer in the video, but you can be there to welcome back the many teams who are rowing to Antigua from La Gomera in the Canary Islands. We look forward to seeing everyone there. Start your day off the right way by playing the tune. Warning - it's a catchy number - and it's going to stay with you for the day.
