Early this year, Andy Hodgson, a record-breaking ocean rower, and Rosalind Chaston, a graduate in Ocean Physics, will embark on the challenge of a lifetime as they take on the mighty Atlantic Ocean completely alone and unassisted.

Their journey will be a 3,000 nautical mile row from the Canaries across to the Caribbean in order to raise money for and awareness of two personally important charities, the RLNI and BLUE Marine Foundation.

The pair, known as Atlantic Escapade, are being supported on their ocean voyage by GTC and we will be lending them some vitally important, Iridium-powered, satellite communication equipment and Ocean Signal safety beacons should they encounter difficulties at sea.

3,000 nautical miles | 2 people | 1 ocean

Their Iridium satellite hardware will enable them to communicate globally via voice, SMS, email, and through social media updates. We are happy to have provided them with the means of being able to communicate from the middle of one of the world's most remote locations.

The products we provide are designed to achieve global communication streams, which the pair will use to deliver educational video features during their epic voyage. These videos will be shown in schools back in the UK, where students will be able to get an insight into life onboard a very small boat in a very large ocean.
