From the Tideway to the Atlantic

On 12 December, two members from Vesta Rowing Club in Putney will take on the biggest rowing challenge of their lives – the Atlantic Ocean. We meet Victoria Carroll and Saf Greenwood to find out more as they prepare to start rowing in the 2021 Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge

One hundred and fifteen rowers in 38 crews from around the world will take on the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge when the race starts on Sunday 12 December. Months of preparation, training and fundraising will finally be put to the test over the next few weeks.

Vesta novice women’s coach Victoria – known as VC – and rower Saf are one of 10 pairs preparing to row the 3,000 miles from La Gomera in the Canary Islands to Antigua in a few days time. We caught up with them to hear about their ocean rowing journey so far, as they prepare to row their boat out of the marina in La Gomera.
