In December 2022 we - Marcel Ates, Guus Koppes, Ingeborg Dijkstra and Ilja Kok - will cross the unpredictable Atlantic Ocean in a rowing boat.
A challenge of two-hour shifts around the clock rowing awaits. Rowing from the island of La Gomera to Antigua in the Caribbean. A journey of almost 5000 kilometers (3000 miles) of open ocean.
Crossing the Atlantic Ocean in a rowing boat is about extreme teamwork, confidence, pushing mental and physical limits, for over a month. Above all, this challenge is about endurance.
We are to the moon that Boskalis is our proud sponsor and since most of the boats of their fleet start with BOKA...
we are Team BOKA NEDurance.
