We were privileged to have the use of Nelson’s flagship at the Battle of Trafalgar, HMS Victory, where we held interviews, and reflected on the enormity of our challenge, in comparison to the perils that were faced by the Ship’s Company of that great vessel. We are embarking on an adventure into the unknown, with unknown perils ahead of us, and those similar thoughts must have been in the minds of every sailor on board that ship as they entered into battle. We don’t face a fierce enemy, but the Atlantic Ocean can be just as unforgiving and hostile, and we need to be ready to face down that danger, and ensure the boat and the team pulls together and conquers that peril.
An entire month has passed since we announced our campaign start; the pace has not slowed down one bit! We are truly humbled by the level of support shown by all those we’ve reached so far with this endeavour. We are delighted to welcome new Bronze partners Xpedite and Advanced Marine Innovation Technology Subsea Ltd (AMITS) to the HMS Oardacious family.
We are delighted to announce that we have now ordered our Rannoch R45 ocean rowing boat - our stronghold and home during the trans-Atlantic challenge!
Our boat is the ultimate blank canvas/floating billboard that will be shown around the world and presents an opportunity for our partners to raise their profile and brand perception on a national and international scale.
