Jack Galsworthy (e 13) and Freddie Wright (m 13) are set to become the youngest people ever to take part in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge this December, rowing 3,000 miles across the Atlantic from the port of La Gomera, in the Canary Islands to the English Harbour of Antigua, to raise funds for the Brain Research Trust, a charity very close to hearts.

These impressive young men will be in a two man boat, two days away from the nearest help, relying on their inner reserves of strength and courage for 70 days. They have been training for 20 months and have taken three months out of their University careers to make this happen.
