Rowers set sail in bid to break Atlantic record

ROWERS set sail in bid to break Atlantic record

TWO Yorkshire rowers have finally set off on a 3,000-mile challenge to cross the Atlantic Ocean after months of practice off the Whitby coast.

Alex Macdonald (23) and Luke Grose (24) from Settle, have raised more than £50,000 in sponsorship to buy and equip their handmade 23ft wooden rowing boat, JCT600 Yorkshire Challenger, and have trained for over two years in preparation for the epic Woodvale Atlantic Rowing Race.

Known as the world’s toughest rowing race, the race has been completed by fewer people than have climbed Mount Everest and Alex and Luke are hoping to break the world record of 40 days for the crossing.
“The lads have prepared well and these delays to the race start have been hugely frustrating, but we are delighted that Alex and Luke are finally under way in their bid to win the race and record for Yorkshire,” said Team JCT600 sponsor John Tordoff.

The rowers are equipped with state of the art satellite phones and data devices and have hundreds of followers on their Facebook pages on the social networking site.

They are planning to send blogs via their Team JCT600 website directly from their boat during their challenge.

PHOTOS: I was commissioned by their PR Company who wanted us to do some action photo's of the pair in the Sea off Whitby. They Wanted a selection of pictures, some showing them in rough seas, and some showing Whitby in the background to for a more local angle.
