"Not only will we have to row at the limits of our endurance in order to break the records, we will also have to tend with the notoriously challenging conditions around the Isle of Wight."
Dave Mans (Army Officer, Parachute Regiment)
With its strong currents and extreme tidal range the open waters around the Isle of Wight offer one of the best settings for an attempt at two of the toughest medium distance open water rowing world records.
This is why a team from Lymington in Hampshire have chosen the area as the approved course for a double Guinness World Record Attempt in late Summer 2021.
The 4 man crew will aim to be the fastest rowing boat over 50 nautical miles in open water and will also look to row the greatest open water distance in 12 hours.
In calm conditions the tide will help the crew, however even a moderate wind could stop their attempt if it isn’t dealt with in the right way.
