Ocean Rowing Boat Trilogy – For Sale

Ocean Rowing Boat Trilogy – For Sale

Built in 2010, Trilogy is a carbon fibre Woodvale 4 and has three successful Atlantic crossings to her name (hopefully four by the time we come to sell her) with the potential for many more. She’s an immensely sturdy and well built craft.

Generously proportioned at 29′ x 7′ she has three rowing positions and will comfortably accommodate a crew of four, including kit and food, or five at a pinch.

Trilogy was extensively refurbished by Justin Adkin prior to her 2018 crossing, and will be visiting him again before we set off in 2021 to ensure that the electrics are in great condition.

In particular, the power management system has been upgraded to make best use of the solar panels. In 2018 this led to ample power being available to run all essential systems, personal items and luxuries on board without any concerns about draining the batteries.

Other upgrades in 2021 include; All deck hatches replaced, new autohelm, new life raft, new para-anchor, new rudder, new dagger board and new batteries to name a few.

As well as top quality electrics, Trilogy comes with an enormous range of kit, which makes her 90% crossing ready.

A full kit list is below.

Trilogy has kept four crews safe across the oceans. She’s a wonderful boat and she will do her new owner proud.

British soldier more than 75 days into world-first Atlantic row

British soldier more than 75 days into world-first Atlantic row

Jack Jarvis and Budgie

British soldier, Jack Jarvis, is currently attempting something no one has ever done before – rowing solo, unsupported, from mainland Europe to mainland North America, all in an attempt to raise money for the incredible charity, brainstrust

The whole journey is around 4,500 nautical miles meaning Jack, who departed from Portugal on Friday 3rd December, will be at sea, alone, for around 120 days, rowing an average of roughly 50 miles every single day!

Jack’s reason for doing this unbelievable challenge is in memory of his grandfather, who passed away in 2007 from a brain tumour, so understandably Jack now wants to raise as much awareness as he can for this awful illness, which effects so many people and families worldwide. He’s already raised more than £30,000 and has received shout outs from the likes of David Beckham, Gary Neville and Sir Steve Redgrave.

Jack, a member of 59 commando, said: ‘To think I’m now more than 75 days into the row is crazy and I’m very aware there’s still so much work to do if I want to achieve this world record.

‘There’s been ups and downs and these are of course largely weather dependent. I once spent four days in parachute anchor which was incredibly testing but I looked on the bright side and used it as an opportunity to catch up with everyone from back home. My military training has definitely played a huge part in getting me this fair, particularly with my mental resilience. 

‘I’m also looking a lot different to when I left, I’ve no doubt shed a few pounds and I’ve currently got a Tom Hanks in Cast Away look going on, which is only right as I brought along my good friend, Wilson!

‘It’s now all about keeping my focus and making sure I make it to the finish line in good time and make my family, friends and the British Army, proud.’

Will Jones, CEO of brainstrust, added: ‘All of us in the brain tumour community are cheering Jack on. This is a herculean transatlantic record attempt. His incredible spirit, endurance and tenacity are inspiring us all. Jack has seen first-hand the impact of a brain tumour diagnosis on his family and we are grateful that he has chosen to use his record attempt to improve the experience of others. He is raising awareness of the isolation, fear and confusion that go hand-in-hand with a diagnosis, and also raising vital funds for brainstrust’s mission to help more people every day, on top of the thousands we reach every year. Jack, thank you.’

And They’re Off!

And They’re Off!

After 10 months of planning, training and meticulous preparation, our inaugural Roxy crew are about to set off from the Canary Islands to fulfil their dream of rowing across the Atlantic together in our brand new flagship 12 person ocean rowing boat, Roxy.  

Some snippets from the crew’s blog that sum up the past few days:

“It’s quite tricky to fill a blog with the words to properly capture the events and feelings of the week before rowing across the Atlantic Ocean. The emotions have been running strong, with nerves and excitement churning together, and the preparation has been extensive, keeping us very busy. Charlie and Dawn, leading us on our row, laid out a comprehensive training programme to ensure we are all ready to take on this incredible challenge.

We set our eyes on Roxy on Wednesday morning, and she looks magnificent! We were given some time to reacquaint ourselves with her, before getting our heads down for a navigation class. Day 2 started with a First Aid course, and we got to grips with what medical equipment is available on the boat. Next, we took Roxy out for a row, which felt brilliant. It’s easy to tell the hard work that Charlie and the Rannoch Adventure team have put in to the boat fit out, and Roxy just feels joyous to row. That evening, the Mayor of Tenerife come to bless our voyage with pink champagne. Friday was a critical training day, including sea survival theory and practical, and our radio course examination. On Saturday we savoured the massive task of unpacking and repacking the boat.

Now, a week after we left the UK, we are sitting on the marina wall, watching Roxy bob up and down on her mooring with just a few hours until departure. All that’s left to do is row across the ocean!”

The Rannoch Adventure team wishes Charlie, Dawn, Cat, Ciara, Ian, Louise, Mark, Rupert, Sian, Simon, Sophie and Ted a safe and happy Atlantic crossing.
