Charity Solo Atlantic Row 2017

Atlantic Row 2017 logoOn 12th December 2017, Captain David 'Wez' Weston will be embarking on an epic solo adventure, travelling 3,000 miles by row boat (Ravi) across the Atlantic Ocean. West from San Sebastian La Gomera in the Canary Islands to Nelson's Dockyard English Harbour in Antigua, Wez will endure raging seas, sharks, heat exhaustion and sleep deprivation as he tackles the physically and pyschologically gruelling challenge known as the Taliskers Whisky Atlantic Challenge.

No stranger to recreational challenges, Wez has previously completed 23 marathons, countless half-marathons and several endurance races.

'Ravi' is 7metres long and just under 2metres wide, with a small cabin to protect Wez from the elements. The boat will be fully equipped at the start of the race, but once he has set off, he will not be able to take any repairs, help, food and water during the crossing - Wez will be alone.

The money raised by Wez before, during and after the challenge will be donated to two charities close to him - The British Heart Foundation and the Intelligence Corps Association

Wez contacted Whitby & Co with regards to support for this challenge and we have donated the following items to assist him in this race:

Whitby Duo help FRANK Water at the Windermere One Way Swim

Whitby team member - SammiiHi! Let me introduce myself. I’m Sammii and I make up one third of the Marketing Team here at Whitby & Co.

Back on Sunday 3rd September, Nick (the Chairman) and I volunteered our time to help FRANK Water serve up refreshments to the swimmers and kayakers taking part in the Windermere One Way Swim at the only on-land food station.

Here’s a little bit about the Windermere One Way Swim - #WOW:

Starting at Fell Foot National Trust, 130 heroic swimmers endured 11 miles of one of the Lake Districts’ infamous lakes – Lake Windermere, finishing at Brathay Hall. Each swimmer had a kayaker with them to provide 1:1 support, protection and guidance throughout the swim.
FRANK Water was the official charity of the Windermere One Way Swim for the 3rd year running.

Swimmers and kayakers stopping by the food stationWith the first lot of swimmers setting off before 7am, Nick and I had to be at the food station, situated at Storrs Hall, for 8am to start food preparation. I don’t think I’ve ever buttered so many slices of bread in my life!! Although the weather was overcast, the water was very calm – ideal for the swimmers.

The first swimmer shot passed us at around 8:45am, not stopping for a refreshments or a break. However, not long after, we were put to work serving hot beverages, sandwiches, bananas, fruit loaf and sweets to anyone you wanted/needed a pick me up.

There was a medic on hand whilst the swimmers and kayakers were stopping to make sure everyone was fit enough to continue and assisting those who were struggling with the cold. The majority of swimmers, however, got back in the water after their refreshment break and continued the enduring swim on to Brathay Manor.

At around 11:30am, all the swimmers had checked in and had refreshments, so we made our way up to Brathay Hall. Unfortunately, by this time the weather had started to change. The rain started to fall and the wind picked up, making Lake Windermere very choppy – not ideal for the swimmers or kayakers. The weather did not deter us or those supporting the swimmers as we cheered them across the finish line – the first one of which completed the swim in an incredible 4 hours 22 minutes and 45 seconds.

The finish lineWe had a great day chatting to and helping those involved in the Windermere One Way Swim and also supporting FRANK Water.

Fancy giving it a go yourself in 2018? Keep an eye on Facebook, Twitter and the WOW website for details.

Paddle Against Plastic - Isle of Skye SUP Expedition

PAP Header 116700402 1654621664834723 1564350300205406765 oPaddle Against Plastic is a platform for highlighting the issues of marine plastic, but more importantly proposing simple solutions, through Stand Up Paddle Boarding (SUP), adventure, and reconnecting with the environment.

Back on the 24th July, Cal Major, Zoe Satsias and Zoe's dog Skye, set out to circumnavigate the 400 miles of the Isle of Skye's rugged coastline. Although the coastline is stunning and untouched, marine litter was found, including plastic bottles and a traffic cone! This goes to show that no one place is any less vulnerable to the harmful effects of plastic waste in our seas and oceans. 

Whitby & Co supported the team in the expedition by donating the following:
