In 2014, the members of Team Boatylicious rowed from Monterey, California to Honolulu, Hawaii as part of the Great Pacific Race in 50 days 8 hours 14 minutes to set two new Guinness World Records as the first and the fastest all female four to row the Pacific.
We are currently selecting a team of four women from around the world to break that record in 2016 and we are inviting you to apply now. We believe that with the right crew and a little bit of luck with the weather than a crossing time of under 35 days is possible.
This extreme adventure and World Record attempt is not for the faint hearted, the size of the challenge should not be underestimated. However, you don’t need to have rowing experience before applying for this incredible challenge as the rowing technique for these wide and stable boats can be taught in an afternoon and courses are taken learn navigation and other required skills. We know that a strong team will have people with a mix of assorted skills from navigation, endurance racing experience, engineering skills or water sports experience, but you must be willing to push yourself hard physically to achieve this incredible World Record.
As part of the Great Pacific Race you will receive exceptional levels of support, provided by our experienced experts throughout your journey from applying through to your arrival in Hawai’i.
