“Shall we row back?”
These were the first words spoken by the ‘Fitter Planet’ team arriving after their epic 3000-mile row across the Atlantic, completing the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge. They finished their journey in an impressive 42 days, 3 hours and 47 minutes.
Field and Lawn is incredibly proud to be one of the ‘Fitter Planet’ team’s main sponsors who have raised over £165,000 for Unicef and ShelterBox so far.
They were the sixth to arrive out of the 21 boats that set off on the 12th of December. The journey was about a week longer than expected due to unusual Westerly winds about halfway through, but the ‘4afitterplanet’ team kept their pace of 2 hours on, 2 hours off the whole way, experiencing all sorts of wildlife and weather in the process.
We’re incredibly proud of the team – Rich, Keith, Josh and James – and we congratulate them on this achievement of a lifetime. Enjoy your well-earned rest guys!
