Learn more about the charity

The challenge is based on the principle that money is raised for a charitable cause. This makes the already interesting challenge even better! Since we have a big heart for children and this also connects us through our personal experience in the USA, it was clear that we wanted to support an organization for children.

Race start TWAC 2020

Today was race start of this year's Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge. Excited, we watched the start through Facebook Live. Originally was planed, that we watch the start live in La Gomera and we would exchange knowledge with current race teams. Unfortunately, due to travel restrictions we weren't able to travel. It's okay though, the exchange in this community is excellent and is happening anyway - just a bit different.

First weekend with Miss Universe

Yes, it was a bit quiet about us. We had to finish our thesis for our studies, but don't worry - we are back now! And we celebrated this right away with a full weekend with our Miss Universe at Vierwaldstättersee in Brunnen. And yes it was a bit cold, but not even that did frighten us!



Tonight, we were invited at the first Ocean-Rowing-Event in Bern, at I Believe In You Switzerland. Florian Ramp, Team Adventure 2019/2020 shared important findings and tips gained during his atlantic crossing with us. Thank you very much and the hospitality from I Believe In You, Bern! At this event we were not only able to exchange knowledge with Florian, but also with other future Swiss rowing teams - what a great evening!

After our long drive from Lucerne to Wassenaar, Netherlands, we were finally able to hug our Miss Universe this evening - well rather pet her.
