Thurso to Faroes 2015
The Scotland to the Faroe Islands expedition is now complete. The route was from Thurso to Tórshavn and this first leg was skippered by the experienced ocean rower Livar Nysted with an all Faroese crew - it was a hard, tough and wet row. The second leg of the expedition will be the return route from Tórshavn to Thurso. There are other exciting and interesting expeditions being planned and we will always welcome more supporters for any of ORE's Expeditions.
Ocean rowing boat, Avalon is a monohull, made of carbon kevlar with design features which aide self-righting and reduce drag significantly. These are unique to our boat and we are quietly confident that she is indeed a very special craft with blistering pace. Avalon crossed the Atlantic Trade Winds route earlier this year as well as the same crossing in 1014 and an Indian Ocean expedition.
Ocean rowing is a tough challenge no matter which route an expedition takes. It is probably the ultimate in endurance sport and requires tenacity and ability to endure a harsh regime of 2 hours on 2 hours off whether the row lasts for a week or months. Our core crew are passionate about the ocean and treat her with the utmost of respect and always endeavour to pass this love for ocean rowing on to crew members. Viking Row Events strive to break records with each and every row and for both sponsors and crew alike to be part of something as adventurous represents great value and long lasting PR and press opportunities. We have a proven track record and testimonials from previous crew and sponsors as to how well we involve our supporters, their staff, clients, crews families and how much media we are able to generate for comparatively little amounts.
If you are interested in crewing or sponsoring on any of our future expeditions there are always opportunities to get involved for good people. Please call us or email us
