8 Days to go – Stuart Connacher from Facing It

Filed in Blog by on December 8, 2015 • views: 2219

In 8 days time, Stuart starts rowing across the Atlantic Ocean from La Gomera to Antigua ( a distance of 3000 Nautical Miles) in the Talisker Whiskey Challenge.


He is doing this not only as a personal challenge – but to also raise awareness and funds for the SMILE FOUNDATION in South Africa. http://www.easyreg.co.za/charity/donations/new?organization_id=4

There are various classes of entrants from teams of 4, 2 and his class, Solo in a pure rowing boat called Tide.

We connected with Stuart via Skype and below is a recording of our brief chat.


Track them here: Start 15 December 2015: https://www.taliskerwhiskyatlanticchallenge.com/race-tracker/

Stuart also sent us a short video clip of one his first sea trials.

We at Awesome South Africans wish Stuart a safe crossing of the Atlantic Ocean and also wish to tell him that we all here at home in South Africa are supporting him.

Go Stuart
