Rowing to the beat – sponsoring team Atlantic Splash

Bowers & Wilkins provides all the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge Competitors with P3 and C5 headphones for the journey ahead.

The rowers taking part in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, a rowing race between the Canary Islands and Antigua, have had the great surprise of receiving two pairs of headphones each in anticipation to the start of the race on December 4th.

The rowers have been provided with two of Bowers & Wilkins’ most reputable headsets, the light and small C5 in-ear model and the award-winning P3 headset. For the long nights rowing on the Atlantic, the competitors won’t have to compromise between reliability and sound quality, as Bowers & Wilkins offers them products of an unrivalled standard.

“We admire what Team Atlantic Splash and the other 15 crews involved in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge are trying to achieve”, explains Geoff Edwards, VP of Operations at Bowers & Wilkins, “and we wanted to go beyond our role as Team Atlantic Splash’s sponsor and give a boost to the other crews involved in the challenge.”

We’ll be following the team with bated breath so watch this space for updates on their progress.

Atlantic Splash is the story of five ordinary men taking on an extraordinary adventure: rowing 3000 miles across the Atlantic. The team hope to raise £200,000 for The Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity, The Tall Ships Youth Trust, The British Heart Foundation and the Macular Disease Society.
