Rowing and Fundraising continues for the Facing the Atlantic Team

Facing the Atlantic team has oars to row with again and the tracking beacon is also working again. Bertie and James have been rowing like crazy and they have passed the point of no return at 38W, which means that they are half way and have the biggest part of the row behind them. Well done lads!

With only 30 nm to go it looks like the first 2 boats in the race will arrive in Barbados today. Solo rower (!) Andrew and due rowers Box Number 8 are fighting for the first place.

Fundraising continues and on you can win two posters signed by Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin, all you have to do is make a donation and you could be one of the lucky winners. Read all about it here.

Two more videos of Bertie and James were made available on the Talisker website. The first was taken shorty after they capsized and the second shows how they received oars from the support vessel Aurora.

You can make a direct donation to Facing The Atlantic here :

Please note: add the code TB4FTA (True Blood for Facing The Atlantic) to the note of your donation so we can keep track of how much was donated by True Blood / Stephen Moyer fans.



  1. Thanks, Shad, for providing. I had seen the videos on the Talisker website. It’s lovely to re-visit them here. Go, Bertie and James! You’ve passed the half-way mark, and that is glorious.

    Two boats arriving in Barbados today. Amazing! Congratulations to Andrew and Box Number 8.

  2. The fact that several boats have finished makes what sounded like a nearly insurmountable task seem doable. Thanks for the videos.
