The Talisker Whisky Challenge is one of the toughest races on Earth- more people have climbed Everest or been into space than have rowed across the Atlantic! It took the team 48 days and 7 hours to row 3000 miles, from La Gomera to Antigua, in shifts of two hours on, two hours of- a grueling challenge but an amazing achievement! We lent the team an Iridium 9555 and Speedmail Email and Web Compression software to help them to keep in touch with home during their challenge.
