Box No. 8 Wins Whisky Voyage

After having travelled 2591 nm during 40 days, 9 hours and 15 min., Team Box Number 8, with Toby Iles and Nick Moore, has now reached Port St Charles, Barbados, as the first boat in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge. Congratulations! HTBS would also like to congratulate Andrew Brown who came in on a second place, breaking the world record for solo rowing, at 40 days, 9 hours and 41 min.

Read article and see short film clip about these three brave fellows here.

The support boat Aurora reached Row2Recovery, which HTBS has written about earlier, on Saturday to supply the boat with drinking water. For a week the six-man crew has been on water ration down to a litre per day since their desalinator broke. Read more about Row2Recovery’s adventurous voyage here.
