The Rowers Are Off!

Many of you came and supported Paul and Phil during their rowing challenges here at The Gate, with their Atlantic Dream Team.

Your support has helped raise thousands for Tiny Lives and The Fire Fighters Charity and now Paul and Phil have set off to compete in the Talisker Whiskey Challenge in the boat they brought along to The Gate which many of you signed.

They are the only wooden boat competing in the race and the oldest pair of rowers. 

We wish them the very best of luck as they compete to row more than 3000 Miles west from San Sebastian in La Gomera, Canary Islands, Spain (28oN 18oW) to Nelson’s Dockyard, English Harbour, Antigua & Barbuda (17oN 61oW).

You can follow their progress in their boat called 'Atlantic Dream Challenge' at
