About North Atlantic Solo NYC to LN

During the summer of 2021, Mark Delstanche will attempt to row solo and unsupported from New York to London and if successful, will be the first person in human history to have done so.

5 Months

14 Hour/Day

2 Million Strokes

Departure is scheduled for May 2021 from the Statue of Liberty after which Mark will head out into the Atlantic to take on the greatest challenge of his life, facing everything that the North Atlantic has to throw at him until finally reaching his destination, passing under Tower Bridge in the late summer.

Whilst at sea, Mark will not only face the physical challenge of rowing in huge seas for many hours every day and the ever present risk of being capsized but also face the psychological battles that come with isolation in adverse conditions. 

Mark will be equipped with gear to collect samples from the North Atlantic that be contribute to the research of the Plastic Ocean Project.
