Clements Engineering support rowing team on Atlantic Row

Clements Engineering are proud to be providing some funds for vital equipment for a team of adventurers who, in December this year, are aiming to enter the record books by rowing non-stop from mainland Europe to mainland South America. 

The team will be supporting 2 charities during their endeavours – Surfers Against Sewage, the Ocean activists and Our Blue Light, which supports emergency and essential workers. 

The challenge will start in the marina of Portimao, on the south coast of Portugal.  Pushing south west towards the Canary Islands through notoriously unpredictable weather, their first 600 miles will be an unforgiving test of life at sea.

From the Canaries they will track the African coast, pressed forward by the mid-Atlantic currents towards South America. Once level with the Cape Verde Islands, it is time to turn due west across the vast Atlantic Ocean to French Guiana. Some 3,800 miles after leaving Portugal, they will approach Cayenne – the capital of French Guiana – where a hot meal and cold beer awaits! 

Clements Engineering will be providing them with some of the safety equipment needed on this epic adventure.  The team are still looking for further sponsors, and you can see their website for futher details. 

We, at Clements Engineering wish the team all the best in their preparation and training for this challenge and look forward to reporting further as the challenge takes place.
