Kate, Kirsty, Laura and Ros will set off from La Gomera in the Canary Islands in December 2018 aboard a rowing boat designed specifically to cope with anything the Atlantic can throw at them.
The race is managed by Atlantic Campaigns and teams of solos, pairs, trios and fours take part, each facing a challenge that has been described as one the hardest on the planet - more people have climbed Everest!
The last race was incredibly exciting with teams setting new world records. This year we're confident that team Row For The Ocean will have a great chance to set a new world record.
The Row For The Ocean team will be raising money for Surfers Against Sewage ... what does that have to do with plastic and why Surfers Against Sewage I hear you ask?
Well, quite simply SAS were an amazingly effective force in the battle to clean up European coastlines and beaches - resulting in the EU Clean Water Bathing Directive which has done so much to make swimming and water sports safe.
They are well placed to raise awareness about the dire problem of plastics in the ocean.
