The Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge 2018

12 December 2018

Congratulations to George Blandford (a broker from Hayward Aviation), and the Oar-inspiring team who have successfully completed the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge - which is popularly known as the world’s toughest row!

They came in second place and have already raised £45K towards granting a wish a week for a year to terminally ill children! 

JLT Specialty was proud to sponsor George (and the Oar-Inspiring team), on this challenging Atlantic row. George's goal was to support an incredible charity called Starlight Children’s Foundation who aim to grant terminally ill children a wish.

The Oar-Inspiring team of four good friends departed from the small island of La Gomera (in the Canary Islands), and rowed unassisted for 3,000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean to Antigua. Attached is the picture of their arrival in Antigua.
