Antigua and Barbuda, with its strong heritage of yacht racing and moniker as the Sailing Capital of the Caribbean, is always keen for a good nautical adventure. And with history about to be made, the destination is more than ready to roll out the red carpet to welcome adventurous Atlantic rowers “Team Antigua Island Girls”, when they row into the historic Nelson’s Dockyard and into the record books as the first all-black female team in the world to row across the Atlantic Ocean, completing the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge this Jan/Feb.

Dubbed the world’s toughest row, the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge is a premier ocean rowing experience that begins in La Gomera in the Canary Islands. On December 12 2018, the teams, twenty-eight in total, set off on their journey braving the Atlantic Ocean, crossing 3000 miles with over 1.5 million oar strokes and little sleep, to get to their destination in Antigua. The first team to finish the Challenge, ‘Dutch Atlantic Four’ was welcomed into Antigua, with much fanfare on the evening of January 15, having spent 34 days out at sea.

The Team Antigua Island Girls rowers: Elvira Bell, Christal Clashing, Samara Emanuel and Captain Kevinia Francis are expected to arrive later this month, where family, friends and mammoth crowds of well-wishers will gather at the Nelson’s Dockyard, a UNESCO World Heritage Site to cheer them on as they row in and celebrate the successful end of their journey. Junella King, the alternate and fifth member of Team Antigua Island Girls, will meet her teammates in Antigua.

"Antiguan ja Barbudan rikas meriperintö ja vertaansa vailla oleva ympäristö, jonka telakka-alueelle soutavat kilpailijat kohtaavat, tekevät Antigua ja Barbudasta ihanteellisen paikan tälle tapahtumalle. Olemme iloisia voidessamme toivottaa kaikki soutajat, heidän perheensä ja ystävänsä tervetulleeksi Antigualle ja Barbudalle tästä kokemuksesta ”, sanoi Antiguan ja Barbudan matkailuministeri, arvoisa Charles Fernandez.

“While this is the third time a team from Antigua and Barbuda has entered the Challenge, we are truly proud that the first all-black female team to row the Atlantic is comprised of four courageous Antiguan women. The entire nation is rooting for our girls and we are really looking forward to welcoming them home and celebrating the strength of women. This is history in the making, and it will truly be a momentous occasion for Antigua and Barbuda.”

Antiguan saaren tytöt -tiimi on yksilöinyt paikallisen hyväntekeväisyyden, Cottage of Hope, yhdeksi tärkeimmistä syistä heidän riveihinsä. Cottage of Hope on vuonna 2009 perustettu voittoa tavoittelematon järjestö, joka taloa ja / tai palvelee tyttöjä, joita on väärinkäytetty, laiminlyöty tai orpo. Toivon mökki Team Antigua Island Girls -yhtiön keräämillä varoilla tarjoaa laajempia palveluja ikääntyneille nuorille naisille, jotka ovat siirtymässä ryhmäkodista omaan elämäänsä.
