AdventureHub

Global Expedition and Ocean Rowing Specialists

Rowing an ocean is one of the greatest endurance adventure challenges.  It is everything a real adventure should be - physically, technically, emotionally and mentally challenging.  It demands high levels of preparation and training, technical knowledge and skill.  There is also no guarantee of success but good training, careful instruction and experienced support can greatly increase the chance of success.

AdventureHub is the only independent training and safety provider and has experience of multiple crossings of different oceans as well as training and mentoring crews who have achieved success at sea including numerous world records.  Ocean rowing is growing and developing and AdventureHub is at the forefront of this progress.

Why AdventureHub - some key facts:  

Over 12 years of ocean rowing experience.

More current, relevant experience in training and safety development in ocean rowing than any other individual or organisation.

The author and provider of the only safety and training course recognised by the Spanish Port Authorities and stipulated by them as a prerequiste for being granted port clearance.

In the two Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge races since 2015 our training course was mandatory and we provided safety officer cover for both fleets. Of the 39 boats in the races 38 completed the challenge with one non emergency evacuation due to technical problems. This record is unparalleled in the sport and is directly attributable to the training and safety measures developed and implemented by AdventureHub.

AdventureHub is the lead advisor for the development of the rules and safety procedures for the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge - the worlds leading ocean rowing event. These rules are the model requested by the Maritime and Coastguard Agency to be held as the example and guide for all ocean rows.

AdventureHub is the only truly independent training and safety advisor who are not selling boats, places in their own race or on a rowing experience. Our training and advice is about what is best for you.

We have good working relations with all ocean rowing boat builders and race/experience providers and can give fair, impartial advice which is aimed at the rower.
