Talisker Atlantic Challenge

Talisker Whiskey Atlantic Challenge

In December 2015, a small fleet of 26 rowing boats set off from La Gomera in the Canary Islands on an astonishing journey. Filming with our drone in a 10 foot swell, operating from a small fishing boat far out in the deep unforgiving Atlantic Ocean made for extremely challenging conditions. Competing in the Talisker Whiskey Atlantic Challenge to row 3000 nautical miles across the Atlantic Ocean to Antigua. Filmed for National Geographic, this race is one of the toughest on earth.

Aerialworx filmed the competitors on their intensive training in Scotland, the race start on the stunning island of La Gomera in Spain, and finally to the finish line in the tropical splendour of Antigua. Our drone filmed remarkable footage of these brave crews as they rowed their way across the Ocean on their perilous journey. With danger at every stroke their story of bravery and heroism is a remarkable one.
