Proudly Sponsoring The Atlantic Lions

The rowing team is racing across the Atlantic Ocean this winter in a 9 metre rowing boat as part of the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge. The team of four, which includes former Gardner Croft employee Matt Townsend, sets off from La Gomera in the Canaries to English Harbour, Antigua on 15th December, racing against twenty other boats. They expect to take 45-55 days to complete the crossing and hope to raise £100,000 for the MS Trust while doing so. Gardner Croft has supplied the team with some essential clothing.
