That's our tagline, We don't do average. So when we heard about our good friend Jack Jarvis attempting a jaw-dropping brand new world record attempt, to row solo unsupported across the Atlantic from mainland Europe to mainland North America, we thought maaaaan we've got to get involved. Alongside many 'he's mad' 'what if he gets eaten by Orca's?' 'He'll miss Christmas dinner' convos we came to the conclusion our FitVentures were the perfect opportunity to help support Jack and raise money for his incredible charity - brainstrust. We're donating 2 spaces on our Thailand Energise, FitVenture to one lucky winner with each entry just £5! PLUS - You can enter as many times as you like!
The whole journey is around 4,500 nautical miles meaning Jack will be at sea, alone, for a total of around 120 days, rowing an average of almost 50 miles every single day! Jack’s reason for doing such a hard challenge is in memory of his grandfather, who passed away in 2007 from a brain tumour, so understandably Jack now wants to raise as much awareness as he can for this awful illness, which effects so many people and families worldwide.
Upon completion, Jack, who departed for the challenge on 3rd December 2021, will become a Guinness World Recorder and be the first person in history to complete this particular route, from Portugal to Miami.
