Unfortunately we had to withdraw, and won't take part in the Worlds Toughest Row - Pacific

With our team of 4, Atlantic Dutchesses, we won the female class of the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge 2020. Our story is not over yet. We love the Ocean, we love rowing. Why not take part in this new adventure? Marieke and Renate tried very hard to work out everything that was needed to participate in the Worlds Toughest Row - Pacific. Unfortunately, time&money&logistics were against them and they had to withdraw. They still feel very sad about it. But that is one of the challenges! It's for a reason they say, it's harder to work yourself to the startline than crossing the Ocean itself.



There's at least 35 years of rowing experience added together. We are good!



That's the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, the world's toughest row. We won!


days, 4hrs, 56 mins

A bit over 6 weeks it took us to cross the Atlantic Ocean, from La Gomera to Antigua. Not bad is it!



The Pacific Challenge, from Monterey to Hawai. Only pairs with Ocean experience can join. Let's make this happen!
