ROWING 3000 MILES ACROSS THE ATLANTIC OCEAN IN DECEMBER 2022

ROWING THE ATLANTIC FOR CLEANER OCEANS
 

 

Every year, millions of tons of plastic enter the oceans, of which the majority spills out from rivers. A portion of this plastic travels to ocean garbage patches, getting caught in a vortex of circulating currents. If no action is taken, the plastic will increasingly impact our ecosystems, health, and economies.

By rowing the ocean, we aim to realize The Ocean Cleanup's mission and work towards a future where plastic no longer pollutes our oceans.

Ocean Cleanup's team consists of 120 engineers, researchers, scientists, computational modelers, and supporting roles, working daily to rid the world's oceans of plastic.

 

NEDurance rows for a cleaner planet, one stroke at a time.

THE CHALLENGE

In December 2022 we - Guus Koppes, Ingeborg Dijkstra, Marcel Ates 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 Carribean. 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.

 

So, here we are: Team NEDurance!
