The Team’s boat is a Justin Adkin designed boat built by Simon Chalk called ‘Small and Mighty’
She was built in 2011 for Elmer Ole for a north Atlantic Crossing, and was originally called ‘Maple Leaf’ when it took “2 Boys in a Boat” across the Atlantic in 2013 on its first Atlantic Passage.
The team acquired the Guinness World Record of the youngest team to ever have crossed the North Atlantic from East to West.
The boat then moved on to become the transport of the team “Atlantic Waterbabies” for the 2015 Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge and she was renamed “Small and Mighty” The pairs team didnt work out unfortunately and the boat was rowed as a solo across in an incredible 58 days, 15 hours AND 15 minutes. Winning Callum Gathercole another Guinness World Record as the youngest ever solo rower of the North Atlantic – east to west, at 20 years old.
The boat is currently going through its 3rd incarnation with Row West 2017 – to hopefully another successful Atlantic Crossing.
