Atlantic Row 2013

A year ago this month we were getting enthusiastic at the prospects of Dan Howie from Northallerton (and old school pal of Tom Kerfoot!) and London based Will North facing the challenge of their lives by competing in The Talisker Whisky Atlantic Rowing Race. Well  I’m here to tell you that THEY HAVE DONE IT!!

Our two salty seadogs ‘ Atlantic Row 2013’ came first in the pairs category rowing into English Harbour in Antigua on Monday morning 26 January having spent the previous 53 days rowing across the Atlantic from their start point in the Canaries on 4 December. There were crowds of cheering people on the quayside waiting to welcome Dan & Will to Antigua with flares and fireworks going off in celebration.  No doubt the celebrating continued with the pair finally getting stuck into a steak dinner and maybe a couple of beers!!

Here at The Kerfoot Group we have been tracking Dan and Will  all the way – not only as proud sponsors but as huge supporters  and we are all so very pleased and proud of their great achievement.  Congratulations to ‘Atlantic Row 2013’ from all at The Kerfoot Group.
