Ricky Reina and John Wilson have commenced their journey and training for The Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge 2018. During the week the rowers are participating in a RYA Navigation Course, first aid and sea training with SeaSports South West. The week will furnish the guys with invaluable knowledge for the challenges that face them during their crossing of the Atlantic from La Gomera in the Canary Islands to Antigua, 3000 miles of unforgiving ocean.
The course is highly informative with plenty of opportunities for the boys to put their new found knowledge into practice. The course involves charts & publications, safety, buoyage, tidal awareness, visual & electronic navigation, key elements required when endorsing on such a dangerous challenge.
