Roaring What?

We are Team Roaring 40s: two mates, both forty years old (more or less), and we’ll be rowing across the Atlantic in 2022 as part of the Talisker Atlantic Challenge. Our focus is to win the pairs division, and we hope that our journey will inspire others to take on their own challenges.
