An epic 3000-mile row across the Atlantic, which encompasses over 1,000,000 strokes and to top it all off they are going for a world record. They are aiming to break the women's pairs world record.
The race is estimated to last anywhere from 50 to 90 days and include searing equatorial heat, ocean storms and 40 foot waves along with anything else mother nature and her friends throw at them. The race starts in the Canary Islands and finishes in Antigua.
We wish Jemma and Lauren the very best as they get their final preparations underway before they commence their monumental journey on the 12th December.

As a business, WTA have chosen the Butterfly Children’s Hospices in Changsha, China as our supported charity for 2016. We are pleased to partner with them as a corporate sponsor.
Butterfly Children’s Hospices provides loving care and medical treatment for children with life-threatening illnesses. Some children have been abandoned. Others are brought to Butterfly when families can no longer face the journey alone. No matter how small or how sick each child is given the care and medical attention they need, the love and dignity they deserve. BCH also provides training and education for Chinese medical personnel and government officials in the art and science of palliative care for children.
We are proud to support the vital work of Butterfly Children’s Hospices. If you would like to know more about the charity or how you can get involved please visit www.butterflych.org or watch their video here
