Celebrations at the Atlantic Avengers launch took place in the Channel Suite at the Leas Cliff Hall on Saturday 4th November 17. The Atlantic Avenger’s rowing boat was displayed at the entrance of the venue on the Leas in Folkestone and lit up by neon blue lights.
The evening was dedicated to these two ordinary local men who are starting their journey and preparation to row the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, the world’s toughest row in 2018. Alan Campbell the Ambassador for the Atlantic Avengers echoed the enormity of the challenge and said Ricky and John were inspirational and maybe a little crazy in taking on such an encounter.
With thanks to friends, family, local businesses, all donating so much during the evening, to support the three chosen charities, Click Sargent, Shepway Sports Trust and Opera Global Youth Foundation.
The Team are now preparing the next event which is the London Launch, soon to be announced. Hoping to achieve great things and welcome new sponsors onboard! Details coming soon.
