We participated in a week long training camp in Burnham-on-Crouch organised by the race organisers Atlantic Campaigns and Rannoch Adventure. It was incredible to be amongst so many ocean rowers and get a feel for what’s to come. The reality has very much set in for all teams and what we loved the most was the unity between everyone.

We have smashed our minimum hours target for on water training and aim to get together for a few weekends next month also!

july training in wales

We spent a week near Milford Haven in Pembrokeshire Wales for a week of on water training.

We completed our first overnight row of continuous rowing, practiced our drills and familiarised ourselves with all equipment on board.

A big thanks to Gareth Reynolds of Atlantic Dragon (solo Atlantic Rower 2020) for letting us keep our boat at Dale Sailing Company at Neyland for our July and August training

We are absolutely over the moon to share with you our newest team member. Formally known as The Crusader, this beautiful R45 Elite has completed one Atlantic crossing by the legends that are @lat35atlanticchallenge2020

She suffered a marlin strike last year, but it’s been beautifully repaired and she’s as good as new! Our theory is that if it’s been hit by a marlin once before, then what are the chances of a 2nd time?!

A big thanks to @rannochadventure for all their help securing our vessel!

Our adventure now really begins!

and we have a boat!

John from @row4heroes Atlantic Guardsman showed us the ropes, taught us essential drills, and passed along his knowledge and experiences from his own Atlantic crossing. The introduction to on water ocean rowing was invaluable and we really valued our time with him.

And to top it off the guy gives epic banter! Don’t be a stranger now you ol badger

We were pleased to become a team of 4 and welcome Jessica Goddard to our team.

3 became 4


After a few months of exploring different logo options we selected our final choice. We wanted a modern and crisp logo - we love the inclusion of the ocean boat outline and the compass needle is set near the readings we require to reach Antigua from La Gomera.

In Deep Ship's journey started as a trio, as Joe, Lauren and Jessica Mullins signed up for the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge in March 2020, a week before the UK went into its first national lockdown.
