The Challenge

THIS YEAR, ANTHONY WARD THOMAS WILL BE UNDERTAKING A NEVER BEEN DONE BEFORE CHALLENGE. TOGETHER WITH JAMES KETCHELL, HE PLANS TO PEDAL, ROW AND KITE ACROSS THE ATLANTIC OCEAN IN A UNIQUE BOAT. THE CHALLENGE WILL TAKE A MINIMUM OF 45 DAYS TO COMPLETE, SETTING OFF FROM THE CANARY ISLANDS AND FINISHING IN ANTIGUA. 100% OF ALL PROCEEDS WILL GO TO NAOMI HOUSE, A TRULY WONDERFUL HOSPICE FOR TERMINALLY ILL CHILDREN IN HAMPSHIRE.

THE ROUTE

Anthony and James will start from The Canary Islands and pedal, row and kite 2,930 miles across the Atlantic Ocean to Antigua.

They will follow the same route that Sir Christopher Columbus took when he discovered the Americas in the 15th century. The boat has been designed and constructed by Rannoch Adventure, and is a one-off experimental boat.

OUR MISSION

Our objective is to have fun and raise as much money and awareness for Naomi House as possible. 100% of all proceeds raised will go to Naomi House. We are not racing or trying to break any records with this campaign. For those of you who would like to make a donation to Naomi House, you can do so here.
