The Boat

The Boat

The boat ‘Tamu’kke’ is a purpose, hand-built 7.3 metre Rannoch R25 made from carbon, making it not only lighter but far stiffer, allowing her a greater glide through the water.

It is only the third boat of its type to be built, and the first ever to be built with carbon.

She is a truly groundbreaking boat, encompassing years worth of ever-evolving design and the latest materials available.

The Route

Over 3000 miles from West Africa to South America

Leaving Freetown in Sierra Leone, and arriving in Georgetown, Guyana.

Continent to continent, Commonwealth to Commonwealth.

The Route

The route not only covers crossing the roaring Atlantic Ocean and everything it has to throw at you in an 8 metre rowing boat, but also the truly unpredictable ‘Doldrums’ immediately west of Sierra Leone.
