SalesEnabla are proud to be a Gold Sponsor of Ocean Dadventure who will be rowing across the Atlantic Ocean in the ‘World’s Toughest Row’ in 2022.

 

The Challenge 

In December 2022, 4 Dads will undertake a 3,000 mile row across the Atlantic Ocean from La Gomera to Antigua as part of the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge. They will battle 40ft waves, sleep deprivation and push their bodies to their limit. One of these Dads is our CEO and Founder, Matt Garman – we couldn’t be more proud to support this epic task he’s undertaking!

The team will attempt to complete this journey in 40 days, on a brutal shift pattern: working in pairs, 2 hours on, 2 hours off, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Consuming up to 5,000 calories a day with a total of rowing 1,500,000 strokes upon completion.

The Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge creates an international platform for each team to raise funds for its charity of choice. So far the participants of the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge have collectively raised just over €11m for charities worldwide since 2013.

Ocean Dadventure are rowing in support of two incredible charities: Wolo Foundation in Sussex, England, that helps support families affected by cancer, and Prostate Cancer UK, raising awareness for a disease that affects so many men of our age.

 

The Team

The crew of four are seeking to inspire and show people that life begins at 40, or even 50! Between them, they’ve competed at CrossFit games, climbed mountains, finished Ironman events and competed at endurance swimming events.

All Dads enjoy fitness, have a common passion for adventure and taking on (which seem to be) impossible challenges.
