A plucky team of 4 adventurers will set off rowing across the Atlantic Ocean in December 2017. This fantastic four includes Chris Shirley, an adventurer who set the world’s first record for the fastest marathon time while carrying a 100-pound (45kg) back pack. Chris is an endurance athlete who has completed 2 Ironman triathlons; and is also a former Royal Marines Commando Officer, and a disaster response volunteer.
This 3500 –mile (5, 633 km) row across the Atlantic Ocean is in support of Team Rubicon; a disaster response organisation that supports veterans by helping them to help others. Team Rubicon responds to emergencies on home turf and overseas; giving veterans a renewed purpose, a new community and self-worth.
As firm believers in stretching the possibilities; The Mantis Collection stands aptly in support of this great feat as one of Rowing for Rubicon’s sponsors. We are proud of this collaboration and wish Chris and his team fair winds and following seas.
