Are you the one?
As with most challenges, the real difficulty comes in the planning and preparation. The financial costs are high, and the team requires support from sponsors who could provide money/equipment/services and would value having their name associated with our project. Financial support is required to help cover the (leasing) costs of the boat, equipment, shipping, entry fees, clothing and other miscellaneous items. It is estimated that a budget of €120.000 is required. The higher the figure, the more competitive the boat and associated equipment would be, increasing the chances of winning.
So to make this adventure happen we are looking for partners who will cooperate with us. This can be in services, materials and of course… donations. We can work with you to identify how your brand, product or service can best be incorporated within the campaign and how it can support your own marketing initiatives.
The World's Toughest Row is a fast growing race with a lot of media attention. The race is becoming more famous and therefore it gets more and more screening time on TV, internet, radio, newspapers and will be the talk of the town. Worldwide! When you would become our sponsor, your service or product will receive great national and international media attention over the next two years.
Imagine your logo/brand and colors on our boat crossing the Atlantic ocean. A lot of exposure for your brand and company to everyone who follows this epic journey.

RP3, Jan and Annet Lammers from Haaksbergen, The Netherlands, provided us with row training simulators!!
The rowing simulators of RP3 provide us the closest feeling to the boat and takes indoor rowing to a new level and dimension! The simulators are connected to a RP3 app. With the app we (Anique and Saskia) can connect and train together from our homes. The app tracks and generates performance stats and challenges us to get the most out of our rowing. We view our areas for improvement in one clearly visible force curve. Thanks to Jan and Annet we are able to improve our rowing performance every day with live feedback based on precise and accurate data. If you want to get more out of your training and rowing experience we advise you to take a look on their website!
