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 taking them 3000 nautical miles across the Atlantic Ocean to Antigua in the Canary Islands.
Filming for Talisker Whisky and Atlantic Campaigns we find ourselves filming from the back of a small fishing vessel, far out in the deep unforgiving Atlantic Ocean. Our drone and team had to endure rain, wind, extreme storms, not forgetting 10 foot swell.
Filmed for Talisker, this race is one of the toughest on earth.
If you’re looking for a highly experienced and skilled team to assist with your drone filming at sea – please do get in touch. Alternatively, if you’re thinking about flying your own drone at sea – don’t forget to read our Top Tips for flying a drone from a boat.
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.
