Karshare is thrilled to be supporting four adventurous women taking on the Talisker Whiskey Atlantic Challenge next month! Lorna, Phoebe, Sarah and Sofia aim to be the first team to complete the race in an environmentally-friendly way, raising awareness of the pollution of our waters. Based in Bristol, the four gulls came together from France, Uruguay, Scotland and Cornwall to share their love of adventure and passion for sustainability.
The Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge is an annual race, which takes place in December, departing from San Sebastian, La Gomera, Canary Islands and finishing in the English Harbour, Antigua and Barbuda. Around 30 crews from around the world take part in a range of crew sizes. The aim is to complete the crossing unassisted. The current all-female crew record is 34 days, 13 hours, 13 minutes.
Karshare are proud to be a Bristol Gulls sponsor and to have our logo featured on the athlete’s eco-boat, containing solar panels and a water maker, alongside logos from companies across the South West and beyond.
