Four Dads, 3000 miles across the Atlantic

Four Dads, 3000 miles across the Atlantic

In December 2024, four everyday dads, currently unencumbered by any meaningful seafaring experience, will attempt to cross the Atlantic Ocean in a rowing boat as part of the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge.


Like many other dads, they have served their time performing simple but noble tasks of fatherhood such as removing spiders from rooms, relearning junior cert Math and doing late-night taxi runs.

Now, they plan to row almost 5,000 kilometres west from the Canary Islands to Antigua & Barbuda to raise funds for Heart Children and Jigsaw.

Team member John is Dad to a young girl who was born with complex CHD, “The things that most of us take for granted are daily challenges for my daughter Saoirse. I tell her all the time that she is my hero, and I would like to inspire her as much as she inspires me”.
