Bradford Duo Gearing Up To Row Atlantic Ocean
Team Hell Oar High Water - James Tordoff and Chris Nicholl
Following on from the success of Row4Victory and the Yorkshire Rows, Hell Oar High Water is the next Yorkshire team gearing up to row 3,000 nautical miles across the Atlantic Ocean in the next Talisker Whiskey Atlantic Challenge.

The gruelling challenge will see the Bradford pair, James Tordoff and Chris Nicholl, embark on “the world’s toughest row” from La Gomera in the Canary Islands to Antigua, starting in December 2019.

With no background in rowing, they aim to demonstrate that anything is possible by winning the ‘pairs’ category of the race whilst raising money and exposure for their chosen charities - Centrepoint (which helps around 10,000 young homeless people a year), Bradford Hospital’s Charity Neonatal Unit (which provides specialist care to premature babies) and Automotive Industry Charity, Ben.

Peter Dodd, Commercial Director for Welcome to Yorkshire said:
“Welcome to Yorkshire has a proud history of supporting Yorkshire-based individuals and teams facing incredible challenges - and this year is no exception. It’s fantastic to have another team flying the Yorkshire flag in the Talisker Whiskey Atlantic Challenge.”

Welcome to Yorkshire hosted a launch event for the pair this evening, which provided an opportunity for guests to find out more and take a closer look at the teams 7-metre boat.

Chris Nicholl of Hell Oar High Water, said:
“It’s been a great launch hosted by Welcome to Yorkshire and a great turn out - we’re really grateful to everyone for the support, including Row4Victory and the Yorkshire Rows who offered some invaluable advice! We’re really excited about the upcoming challenge and we can’t wait to get on the water and start training in the new boat this weekend!”
