Across the Atlantic in a Rowing Boat

Across the Atlantic in a Rowing Boat

Atlantic Guardsmen on the Talisker Whiskey Atlantic Challenge


40 days at sea.  6 metre waves.  A diet of 10,000 calories a day.  And four men in a rowing boat, battling all kinds of waves, wind and weather to cross the Atlantic.

Meet John Adams - he's taking on a fierce competition called the "Talisker Whiskey Atlantic Challenge". Along with three other crew mates, Derek Spence, John Ford, and Colin Corfield, John will be testing his endurance and his limits.

It's all in aid of raising money for the Scots Guards Charity, supporting serving and retired soldiers, and their families.  Find more about their campaign Row 4 Heroes, including how you can help support the charity.

Hear Betty probe John about how he's going to go to the bathroom, how long dairy products are going to last, and so much more.
