Ben Fogle & James Cracknell donate their boat to Team Atlantic Row 2013

By Dan Howie | June 18th, 2012 | Department: Atlantic Row 2013 | Categories: News, The Boat

We have a boat!!! Team Atlantic Row 2013 are now the proud owners of the Spirit of EDF Energy!

The boat has kindly been donated by Ben and James, who won this very race in her back in 2005.

The boat is looking a little tired and it’s unlikely we will use her for the actual race, but she will be a hugely valueable asset to help us find sponsorship. Her first outing will be at Henley Regatta in a few weeks time so please come and say hi if you are attending. We gave the boat a good clean over the weekend and found some laxatives on board and some scrawl on the ceiling of the cabin saying ‘No rest for the wicked’.

We also found stowed away in the hull a 500cc on board engine!! Anything you want to tell us guys?!! (Jokes…)

A huge thank you to Ben and James for your generous support. Here is a picture of our very own scrubber boy (Will) cleaning the deck.
