Kirsty Barker (one of Curry Rivels's own) and her crew are all set to take part in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, this is an annual race to row from La Gomera in the Canaries to Antigua, a distance of some 3000 miles. After a fantastic 10 months of fund raising and talking to sponsors they have managed to raise in excess of £100,000.

Their boat "Liberty", which was launched in Exeter in September, should now be in La Gomera, (Tenerife), for the start on Dec 12th. It will be a grueling race, the rowers are likely to lose 15kg during the row.

The aim of Kirsty and her fellow rowers is to raise awareness of plastics in our oceans.

The Liberty could take anywhere between 6 and 12 weeks to row.

You can follow all the boats by satellite tracking, so why not follow the crew of Liberty as theyRow for the Ocean (and us).
