Four minds. One ocean.

Wainwright is sponsoring Heads Together and Row – a team rowing 3000 miles across the Atlantic to raise money for mental health charities.

On 12 December 2018, a small number of crews will set off on the challenge of a lifetime – to row 3000 miles across the wild Atlantic Ocean. Heads Together and Row will be one of them.

Ahead of them lies a life-changing experience and a World Record attempt to become the fastest mixed four to row the Atlantic (East to West!). The current record is 56 days and the team want to beat it in 50 days. The challenge will be monitored and documented by Henley Business School, where a team of researchers are examining the crew’s mental wellbeing during the row.

The gruelling competition is expected to last up to 90 days, with each crew member being completely vulnerable to the world’s harshest elements. The physical and mental strength required, makes it the ultimate example of Wainwright’s ‘Find Your Mountain’ challenge. And, the row will help raise important funds for mental health charities Combat Stress and Mind.

Follow the journey here. And, if you’re near Wolverhampton on 2 October, why not pop in and see the boat and meet the crew! Email kirsty.polmeer@marstons.co.uk for more info.
