The World's Toughest Row is an unparalleled endurance rowing race and the most prestigious event in ocean rowing. The challenge spans 3,000 miles, with no support, from La Gomera in the Canary Islands to English Harbour in Antigua and Barbuda.

Competitors from all over the world come together to test their limits against the might of the Atlantic Ocean. The World’s Toughest Row unites teams from diverse backgrounds, all with the same goal: to take on the unique challenge of crossing an ocean in a rowing boat. 

The race inflicts sleep deprivation, salt sores, and physical extremes on the competitors. Rowers are left alone with their thoughts, the vastness of the ocean, and the responsibility of getting the boat safely to the other side as quickly as possible.
