Congratulations to Eli Fuller, John Watt, Nico Pshoyos & Scott Potter who rowed their way into 2nd place in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge and into the record books with an arrival time of 30 days.
If you want to join in the dream that our valiant Team have rowed for and be a part of the Marine Park project, all you have to do is donate! A properly managed Marine Park with scuba and snorkel moorings, guided and labelled snorkel trails, coral farming and a ‘no anchor’ zone for foraging turtles is the plan. The Park will benefit all of Antigua economically and environmentally for generations to come as it becomes a major tourist attraction in the region. Part of the money raised by Team Antigua will also go towards assisting relief efforts in Barbuda.
