Known as the ‘worlds toughest row’, the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge is one of the most demanding endurance events on the planet. More people have been into space or climbed Mount Everest than have rowed across the Atlantic. Why? Because it’s so much more than just a physical challenge.
Born in Edinburgh and raised on the North-West coast of Scotland, three brothers thrived on adventure, forever pushing each others’ boundaries. Getting lost at sea, escaping to the lochs or throwing themselves off coastal cliffs; always looking for ways to scare Mum and Dad.

I have pointed out to them that there are quicker and less difficult ways of crossing the Atlantic.” – Alexander McCall Smith, CBE
