Four Mums in a Boat - Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge Documentary

When four middle aged working British mums announced they wanted to row the Atlantic Ocean, their families thought they had lost their minds. With an average age of 47 and two children each, the women had no ocean rowing experience when they decided to follow their dreams and attempt the unthinkable.

Three years later they were lining up with some of the world’s strongest ocean adventurers at the starting line of the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge. Considered one of the toughest ocean endurance challenges known to mankind the odds were stacked against the mums from the start.

This is the story of four ordinary women who dared to dream of becoming world record breakers as the oldest women to ever row an ocean. Four Mums in a Boat is a journey of determination, personal discovery and hope.

#0009 - Tim Crockett - Rowing Across The Atlantic Ocean Alone

Listen now on iTunes, Podcasts, Soundcloud, Spotify, or Stitcher!

Tim Crockett has a strong Military background. As a UK Soldier who served in the Special Boat Service (SBS), he has spent most of his life on, under or near the water. He is going to draw heavily on this experience when he takes on his next challenge, the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge. This race is a 3000+ mile crossing of the Atlantic Ocean in a rowboat. Tim will not only take this challenge on, but he will do it alone.

Tom Rowland met up with Tim at his gym in Atlanta, GA to share a workout in preparation for this challenge. Afterward, the two sat and talked about the race, the challenges, the preparation and the reason why Tim is choosing to take on this challenge. From how he thinks he will be able to eat 12-14,000 calories a day for over 50 days or how he plans to drink 2-3 gallons of water to why he may choose to row naked, Tom and Tim discuss all the potential issues he may encounter. Eventually Tim discusses the main reason behind the endeavor. As a UK Special Operations Soldier, Tim has seen both UK and US soldiers wrestle with PTSD after war. Tim has chosen to raise money and awareness for this issue by making it across the Atlantic Ocean in a 20 foot boat. The boat is called Tame the Kraken which has a much deeper meaning of overcoming fear and the unknown as soldiers are having to do every day after returning from combat.

Tim can be contacted through his website and you can follow him on IG, FB and Twitter. All are tamethekraken except twitter which is @rowatlantic.
