Huge congratulations to our three Walhampton old boys who have completed the biggest challenge of their lives. Finn, Felix and Louis arrived in Antigua yesterday afternoon after 36 days at sea, rowing 3,000 miles across the Atlantic from their start point in La Gomera on 12th December and beating their father's previous time of 59 days in the process!
Head, Jonny Timms, shared his congratulations and said: "It is a remarkable achievement - we are all very proud indeed. Their spirit and adventure, I hope in some way was nurtured at Walhampton. Clearly they have resilience which has helped them complete this challenge, but those qualities are anchored by their values which shone through in their interview after finishing the race. We look forward to welcoming them back soon."
The boys have raised over £25,000 for their wildlife conservation charity Tusk - you can still show your support and donate here: https://bit.ly/3QMggn8
