Atlantic Nomads - Atlantic Challenge 2021

The worlds toughest take on the world’s toughest race challenge while raising vital funds to support Veterans and homelessness.

Ever wondered what it would be like to cross the Atlantic in a rowing boat? Well, we are about to find out.

Alabaré Homes for Veterans is both thrilled and thankful to have been chosen as the official charity of the Atlantic Nomads as they take part in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge in December 2021.  The team of four, two serving Officers and two civilians will row 3,000 plus miles from the Canary Islands to Antigua & Barbuda, rowing two hours on, two hours off for an anticipated 35 days straight (but has been known to have taken up to 87!). Be inspired to support, sponsor, fundraise and cheer them on.
