The Atlantic Rowing Race 2009 is one of the world's toughest ocean rowing challenges and the ultimate test of mental strength and physical ability. This gruelling 2,550 nautical mile race will start from La Gomera, Canary Islands on Sunday 6th December and finish anytime between 40 and 90 days later in Antigua, West Indies.
Using purposely designed and built ocean rowing boats governed by a comprehensive set of event rules and a mandatory equipment list ensures the highest standards of safety and a level playing field. Solo rowers as well as crews of two and four will compete for the highest accolade - to be the first to reach the finish line, in the quickest possible time.
