Across the Atlantic in 40 days

Fortis X Helvetic Waves
Four Men, One Family, One Dream

It all started with a dream. And then they’ve just gone and done it. That simple?

Exactly one year ago, Georg, Matthias, Peider and Sebastian set off to La Gomera, following their beloved boat Heidi. And over a million rowing strokes, many blisters and buckets full of memories after they’ve arrived on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean in Antigua.

It took them 40 days, 13 hours and 5 minutes to fulfil their dream adventure.

Two hours rowing. Two hours sleeping. Two hours rowing. Two hours sleeping. And repeat.
Pushing limits, staying motivated and a little suffering. It's all part of the joy.

Would they do it again? Damn right!

Currently, Heidi is again on her way across the Atlantic. This time with the Team Ocean Spirit. Stay tuned and follow their journey with us.
